Former USMC Captain, US Special Operations Command alum, experienced private military contractor, and lucky recipient of multiple ass-kickings from across the globe, Troy will be passing along lessons learned over the course of five combat tours and almost two decades living in conflict zones.  Troy’s been shot at, blown up, car jacked, and had malaria more times than he can count.  He enjoys long walks in his enemies’ countries, watching civilizations fall, and the overwhelming feeling of incompetence he gets while trying to write poetry.
