us_army_flag_blogWe here at Lion Country Supply would like to welcome our newest member of the team Jim Schrock or “Jimmy” as I like to call him. He started back at the end of June and is in charge of our shipping department. His cell phone number is…..Unknown at the time we hired him I found out he is a Combat Wounded Iraqi Freedom Veteran. The other day he sat down and told me his story. He joined the Army in September of 2000, He and his wife were watching the Price is Right and they saw a Soldier in uniform and his wife made the comment that he would look good in one of those. So he left for work early that day and went straight to the recruiter’s office and two weeks later he found himself at Fort Knox, Kentucky in basic training. After training he joined the 82nd Airborne Division as an Infantry/Logistics Specialist. He was transferred to Germany and the 1st Infantry Division. He was deployed to Iraq in 2003 and while there suffered a blast injury when a rocket propelled grenade exploded near him resulting in a Traumatic Brain Injury.  For His efforts during combat he was awarded the Bronze Star for Valor Under Fire and two Purple Hearts.  I myself and my staff support our fighting men and women in uniform and are glad to have Jim here with us. So if you see him here at Bird Dog Days take a second shake his hand and say hello.
