Highlight Write Up:
Twenty-seven years of combined military and law enforcement experience, and many successes in both fields, make me a competitive candidate for any company requiring these skills. I have extensive experience in military operations as a platoon leader, company commander, Special Forces Team Leader, Battalion level staff officer, and combat operations analyst. As a Special Agent, Criminal Investigator, I have investigated hundreds of criminal cases. Presented these cases to prosecutors from the United States Attorney\’s Offices in Virginia (Richmond, Roanoke, Newport News, Norfolk, and Alexandria) and West Virginia (Beckley and Charleston) as well as local prosecutors in multiple jurisdiction in Virginia and West Virginia and the Virginia Attorney General\’s Office. I have received many awards over the years, not only from my own agencies, but also from the United States Attorney�s Office in two judicial districts.

In addition to my experience and personal qualities, I possess a solid educational foundation and always pursue additional or specialized knowledge and training. Over fifteen years of interviewing people, dealing with attorneys, conducting testimonials, and presenting findings, I have developed excellent written and oral communication skills. In summation, I believe based on my skills and qualifications detailed in my resume I would be value added to any company\’s workforce.
