Laura Kandewen is a retired Army Veteran that served 23, with 22 years served on Active Duty.
I was born in Kingston, Jamaica in 1976 and migrated to the United States with my family in 1988.
Against all odds, I joined the Army right out of high school and began my military career at Ft Jackson, SC in 1995. Eight years into my military career, I received the call that I would be deploying to Iraq along with members of my unit.
I continued serving my country until my retirement in 2018 at my final duty station at Ft Knox, Ky. Over the past 23 years of wearing combat boots, I met and married my husband, and together we have three daughters.Website: http://www.laurakandewen.com/
