LTC Jack McKennaMS, Communication; Integrated Marketing Communication LTC, US Army
"My name is Jack McKenna, I’m a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army Reserves. I’ve been in the military for 30 years – most of my adult life. My undergraduate degree is in Sociology and Criminal Justice. Prior to September 11th, I was a regional supervisor in a special investigations unit. I conducted insurance fraud investigations for major insurance carriers in Massachusetts. September 11th changed my life. I went back on active duty, stayed on active duty for a few years, had a few deployments. In 2006, I was on patrol in Mosul, Iraq. It was around 130 degrees and I realized at that time I needed to do something else."
