February’s “Veteran of the Month” is Craig Walters.  Craig joined the Marine’s in 1986 at 20 years old, because of the commitment he had to our country.  In 1990, Craig was stationed in Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert Storm and Desert Shield.

He fought on the front line during the 1991 initial ground campaign, and went on to be a military police officer for the Marines.  Craig’s primary responsibilities were battlefield control, and prisoner of war handling.  “Fighting for our freedom gives you perspective on what’s really important in life.  Everyday stress won’t kill you – facing bullets will”.
