Something about me that often surprises people is that I am in the Army Reserves. I joined after my freshmen year in college as a combat medic. In 2007 I was deployed to Iraq, with a surgical team, and spent a year overseas. In 2009, I received my commission, and am now Major O'Connor. Im March of 2020 I was mobilized with a medical team in response to COVID19. I have served for 20 years and planned to retire after completing 20 years of service in January, but then I got promoted.
