U.S. Army Warrior Care and Transition

U.S. Army Warrior Care and TransitionArlington, VA – For U.S. Army Spc. Mitchell Bombeck, joining the military was a no brainer. It’s a family tradition.

The self-proclaimed farm boy from Minnesota became an all-wheel diesel mechanic in the Forward Support Company, 682nd Engineer Battalion in the Minnesota National Guard.

At six feet and two inches tall, weighing 230 pounds, it would seem tough to break such a solid man, but it happened.
