Ahmad Smith

Ahmad joined the Marines at the age of 21 after attending two years of college at Vaughn College of Aeronautics. While looking to build a career in the military he graduated recruit training in Parris Island, SC. Apart from the day his son was born, this was one of the proudest moments of his life.  After years of Military Occupational Specialty Training and field combat training, he was selected to be apart of a task force in the middle east for 7 months. He conducted Maintenance of communications equipment and serving as a Basic Machine Gunner for any ranges and possible patrols that would occur, fulfilling his obligation to duty in the middle east.

After serving as a Communication Electronics Systems maintainer in Camp Pendleton, CA he moved to Brooklyn, NY to serve as an instructor to the reserve staff. After 6 years of intense training and a deployment, the time came to move on to future endeavors due to a spine injury which left him with rods and screws in his lumbar spine. Enjoying every challenge and experience he has endured during his time in the United States Marine Corps, his tour has come to an end.

“I am blessed to be provided the opportunity to be a Candidate in the Veteran Training Program,” shared Ahmad. “I never imagined I would be so blessed with an opportunity that will change my life and also the lives of my family, Thank you Bancroft Capital.”
