Introducing MILFEED guest writer Josh Davis

Josh is a retired U.S. Army First Sergeant with multiple deployments — and now a freelance writer.

Josh Davis is a retired U.S. Army First Sergeant. He is Ranger qualified, Airborne qualified, and SERE-C qualified. He is the recipient of the Expert Infantryman Badge, the Combat Infantryman Badge, the Bronze Star, and numerous foreign jump wings.

Josh began his career in October 1995 as a tanker at Fort Knox, Kentucky, and after four years decided that he wanted to become an Airborne Ranger. He completed Infantry AIT, Airborne School, and the Ranger Indoctrination Program (RIP) in late 1999. He went on to complete Ranger School with no recycles in Class 09-00. He eventually found himself in 4th ID at Fort Hood, Texas as a Squad Leader headed to Iraq. Following his return from Iraq, Josh was selected to become a Civil Affairs Specialist and moved to Fort Bragg, NC to attend training. After completing Korean language training and the Civil Affairs Course, Josh was assigned to the 95th Civil Affairs Brigade where he deployed to Afghanistan and Sri Lanka. He volunteered to move to Fort Hood, TX to help standup the new 85th Civil Affairs Brigade. Josh deployed to Afghanistan a second time, and upon return to Fort Hood, took over as First Sergeant of Bravo Company, 81st Civil Affairs Battalion, for five months. He was then selected to take over as the HHC, 81st Civil Affairs Battalion, First Sergeant where he served for the next 23 months before retiring.

While in the Army, Josh earned a B.A. in Religion from American Military University and a M.A. in Human Services Counseling with a Life Coaching cognate from Liberty University. He now lives with his wife and three kids in Buford, GA where he works as a freelance writer and is a barbering student.
