“Serving in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan were defining experiences in my life, and my time at war only strengthened my resolve to go to law school. I saw and experienced both the very best and the very worst parts of human nature during my time in combat. I saw what happens when there is a breakdown of law and order, when the rule of law is no longer respected.”
