Purple Heart Recipient Enjoys Summer Perfection From Dream Renting

Recently I had the pleasure of welcoming David Minter for a late summer vacation in my beach home.  David was kind enough to send over some photos of his years in service along with a quick bio.

David was deployed four times to Iraq.  Twice from 2003 to 2004 and again from 2007 to 2008.  His third deployment was to Afghanistan in 2009 and 2010 and then to Africa in 2011 to 2012.  He also served in the Philipines and South Korea as well.

David received his purple heart for injuries sustained in Afghanistan from a Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG).  Through his service he was involved in other blasts as well.

While being deployed to those far away places, his units were involved in rebuilding infrastructure in those countries from rebuilding schools, roads, bridges, archaeological sites, and government services.

Below are some photos from David’s years in service.  Thank you for your service David, your an inspiration for me to continue with the mission of Dream Renting
