Profiles of Courage - Meet Aaron Barruga

“I enlisted in the military because of 9/11 and served in Special Forces. Deploying to Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Pacific Theater of Operations, I was mentored by some of the most elite American warfighters, intelligence operatives, and foreign commandos. From my first day on a team, until I left the military in 2013, I constantly learned new skills as both a trigger puller and more importantly a teacher. Regardless of the mission, proper application of the fundamentals combined with the ability to immediately adapt was critical to success.“
