A Tribute to our Deployed Marines

Aloha and Semper Fidelis!

Welcome to my webpage! I am an active duty Marine and have served for over twenty years in the Marine Corps. I began my career at MCRD, Parris Island, South Carolina on 28 November 1994 as a Private (E-1). My first tour was with 2nd Battalion, 8th Marines, in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina (MOS 0311), where I did several deployments and real-world operations. I also completed a tour in Hawaii with Marine Corps Security Forces at Navy Regional Security, Pearl Harbor, and served just over 14 months on a Protective Security Detail for Navy Admiral Thomas B. Fargo, Commander, United States Pacific Command (USPACOM). On 6 May 2006 I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in History and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Marines. I finished training at The Basic School (TBS) on 15 March 2007, and started my officer career with Headquarters Battalion (HQBN), 1st Marine Division, in Camp Pendleton, California. While at HQBN, I spent a year with I MEF ATG and deployed to Iraq as the Logistics Advisor for a Military Transition Team (MTT) from October 2008 through May 2009. Following my tour at Pendleton I served as the Logistics/Supply Officer for 3d Battalion, 23d Marines (3/23) in New Orleans, Louisiana. I ended up closing down this location as the unit moved to Bridgeton, MO. Currently I am the Supply Officer at 2d Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW) in Cherry Point, NC and recently served about a year with MAG-14.

This site has a few pictures and links related to our deployed Marines and also some pictures of where I have been. There are links to my family, my hobbies, and some good times from all over the world. If you have any questions about the Marine Corps, our deployed Marines, or where I have been and what I have done, contact me at samahart@hotmail.com or post something in my Guestbook.
