MADISON – Growing up in a military family, Nathan Parsons remembers moving many times with his family.

“Huntsville/Madison is where we settled,” Parsons said. “Madison is a hometown I would claim.”

“My dad was a 22-year EOD veteran. (‘EOD’ stands for ‘explosive ordinance disposal.’ These men disarmed bombs and, at one time, worked for the Secret Service). He retired in Madison after working 20 more years for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,” Parsons said.

His first deployment to Iraq was from 2008 to 2009. He returned to Iraq in 2010-2011. During both assignments, he worked from Schofield Barracks, 2nd Brigade 1-27 Infantry Battalion.

At Calhoun Community College, Parsons earned associate degrees in both business and accounting.
