The goal of this fundraiser is to help the Kurdish people in Northern Iraq and Syria who are defending themselves against the IS threat. I spent 6 years in the USMC and have deployed 3x to Iraq and 1x to Afghanistan. I am fluent in both Arabic and Farsi and speak many of the dialects.
During my time in Iraq I worked with many Kurds and Iraqi Security forces to ensure the safety and security of the people in Al Anbar. I have uploaded my Certificate of Appreciation that I received for my support of the Iraqi Provincial Security Forces as further proof of my qualifications. I also have a Masters Degree from the Monterey Institute of International Studies in Nonproliferation and Terrorism Studies.
I am very passionate about the cause and want to do everything in my power to help the Kurdish people. I will use this money assist the people of Northern Syria and Iraq to ensure their safety and security. Specific questions can be directed to me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/mjfonda.
