Information About the Nominee Eric is serving his second war zone deployment since joining the reserves. He serves with the 16th Psychological Operations Battalion out of Fort Sheridan, IL. His first tour was a year in Iraq patrolling the streets of north east Baghdad for a year. He volunteered for this second deployment even though his time when he could be deployed was up. His contract was coming to an end and he was scheduled to be placed on ready reserve status. You see, when he heard that some of those he served with in Iraq were being deployed to Afghanistan he asked his superior to find a way for him to be included to be with them. Much as when he voluntarily surrendered a scholarship to help him attend MIAD (the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design) to first join the reserves, because after living through 9/11 as a kid he felt a calling to serve. He is a graduate of Neenah High School has attended MIAD and UWO majoring in Art when not serving. We hope he will be home before Christmas from this tour to return to school and work. By the way his nickname has been "Bear" since he was little.
