Q&A with Veteran Scarberry

By: Krissa Scarberry

Veteran Anthony Scarberry is 57 years old and served in the United States Army for 24 years. He also served in Operation Iraqi Freedom for one military term. Veteran Scarberry now suffers from PTSD.

Q: What made you join the military?
A: When I was 27 years old, I was part of a volunteer rescue squad and that really inspired me to become a medic in the armed forces.

Q: How old were you when you joined?
A: 27 years old.

Q: What branch of military did you serve in?
A: Army.

Q: Where were you stationed?
A: Walter Reed, Washington D.C.; Fort Sill, Oklahoma; Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri; Camp Dawson, Kingwood, West Virginia.

Q: Were there any wars going on when you were in service? If so, What?
A: I was at boot camp in Fort Knox, KY when the Beirut bombing happened, and I served in Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Q: Please share a memory.
A: The best memory I have from the military, was really coming home. I was relieved to get off the plane at Charleston and see my family there waiting for me with balloons, signs, and Toby Keith's "American Soldier" playing over speakers.

Q: How has serving affected your life outside of the military?
A: It changed my career, and it really made me appreciate the work that it takes to make this country free, and give us the liberties that the United States offers.

Q: What opportunities has the military provided that you might not have otherwise?
A: It provided my education, and it exposed me to not only a diversity of cultures around the world, but also other cultures in the United States.
