Abstract Schoenfeld was born and raised in Utah. His father was a thirty plus year veteran of the Marine Corps Reserve, which nurtured his interest in joining. He joined the Marine Corps Reserves in 1986. Bootcamp was a great experience despite some of the challenges. He was activated after 9/11 and went to Iraq, experiencing SCUD alerts and passing by signs of earlier destruction during Desert Storm. He recalls the tragedy of losing his Staff Sergeant, their first casualty, in a humvee driving mishap. Later his unit was involved in a heavy firefight in an Iraqi neighborhood where he almost ran out of ammo before the Heavy Weapons commander rushed in with a load for the unit. Michael enjoys his continuing work in the Reserves and has no regrets. Interviewed by John C. Worsencroft. 40 pages and 32 pages.
