Jason joined the Wisconsin Army National Guard in 1993 while still in high school. From 1993 until 2001 Jason served in the 724th Eng. Bn. (now the 951st Sapper Bn.) WARNG out of Tomahawk, Wisconsin and the 395th Ord. Co. AR out of Appleton, Wisconsin. He was honorably discharged in 2001. Jason rejoined the 724th in July 2002 for a “try one,” which is a one year re-enlistment. His unit was mobilized to federal service in March 2003, was deployed to the Middle East in May 2003, and arrived in Iraq in early June 2003.
Though Jason's contract ran out in July 2003, the army saw fit to stop-loss Jason beyond his original contract. He arrived home from Iraq in April 2004 and in August 2004 he was again honorably discharged from the 724th Eng. Bn. WARNG. Jason served as a General Construction Equipment Operator in the 724th and a Supply Clerk in the 395th.
