Captain, Battalion S2 present posting. Assign at HQ. Before that, I was a lieutenant with the MBLT-5 (Marine Battalion Landing Team, infantry) in the 90's. I was put to reserve status after serving 3 years in the Jolo conflict where I was shot, a casualty. After that, I became a musician, a pianist/keyboard player and a singer, worked in several countries with a band (some years as a solo performer). I stopped in 2010 and put up two grocery stores. In May, this year, I am back in the military. I was called to service partly because of my knowledge of rebel guerrilla tactics and experience, and partly, a friend's recommendation--- comrade during my combat years, still active and a high ranking official.
