Updated: Aug 9, 2022

You will hear stories about what it was like to complete medical training at an older age and then take on medical leadership roles at Fort Bragg. He talks about being immediately recruited to become the Delta Force surgeon, but waited a couple of years to hone his clinical skills following residency.

He had the opportunity to arrange a major medical conference, in partnership with USAID, featuring 30+ Physicians from the West to teach local Iraqi doctors to try to bring them closer to the current standards of care.

Following a 30+ year military career, he went on to establish a very successful civilian Family Medicine where he now works part time. He is a prolific author and has published 3 books that cover his time in SEAL training, his experiences as a physician and a book of transcribed letters from a relative that were written during the Civil War.
