Profile Information

At age fifty, Vietnam-era veteran Bob Shano, enraged by the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, signed back up to serve as an Infantryman in the United States Army. Over the twelve years that followed his return to duty, Shano completed three combat tours in support of the Global War on Terror before being mandatorily retired at age sixty-two. His first tour took him to Iraq, where he actively took part in the search for weapons of mass destruction. He deployed to Afghanistan for his second tour, where he served as an advisor for the Afghan border police, national police, and national army. For his third and final combat tour, he returned to Iraq, this time as a member of the 4th Stryker Brigade Combat Team. A native of New York City, for Shano this war would not be a war of attrition, as it had been labeled by some of the Brass and members of the Press. It would be a war of retribution.
