Did you know “Infantry (11B)” is the main land combat force and is considered the backbone of the U.S. Army? And that is exactly the position Corporal (CPL) Trey Strickland honorably served in for over four years. As an Infantry Team Leader, he was responsible for defending our country against any threat by land, as well as capturing, destroying and repelling enemy ground forces. During his career, Trey served on two tours to Iraq (Baghdad ‘06-07 and Diyala Province ‘08-09). “My most memorable experience while deployed was conducting a hostage rescue mission with Green Berets during an intense firefight.”
After earning a degree in biology from Marshall University, he served seven years as an officer in the U.S. Army, culminating in his leadership of a division level (10th Mountain Division) intelligence analysis center supporting the 18th Airborne Corps during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm.
After beating cancer at age twenty-nine and resigning his regular Army commission, he was recruited by Pfizer Inc. as a pharmaceutical representative and achieved nationally-recognized success. He then chose to enter pastoral ministry, serving as a pastor for over twenty years. During that time, Bob was able to preach and teach in many countries around the world while serving churches and ministries. Throughout those two decades, he enjoyed serving veterans in a variety of ways.
Now, as a Financial Advisor with Kemble Financial-Prudential in Matthews, NC, Bob continues to serve by developing comprehensive financial plans for his clients and providing them with face-to-face financial coaching in every area of their financial lives. He is passionate about helping others to pursue the joy and peace of mind that comes from financial security.
