    Retired U.S. Army Capt. William Reynolds has always had a strong sense of team. As a cadet at the U.S. Military Academy, Reynolds competed on the gymnastics team and experienced a great camaraderie between himself and his classmates.

    In 2002, after Reynolds graduated from West Point, he was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the infantry.

    After taking on his first duty station in Korea, Reynolds was stationed at Fort Drum, New York.

    “I went to the 10th Mountain Division. I caught them on their first OIF deployment to Tikrit, so I was out there, I was a staff officer,” Reynolds said. “When I came back I was fortunate enough to take over the recon and sniper employment platoon. Once I took that over, the surge effort happened, so we went from our next deployment being Afghanistan to four months on the ground, we were going back to Iraq.”

    Four months into his deployment in Baghdad, Reynolds’ team responded to a medical evacuation and ran into a coordinated attack as they were returning to their base. Read More
