Wiki says this about his career;
Barreras joined the Army in 1988 after serving in the Marine Corps for five years, according to information from the division.
He served for 22 years in the 75th Ranger Regiment, serving in 1st and 2nd Battalions, the Special Troops Battalion and the regimental headquarters.
In the Ranger Regiment, Barreras served in virtually every enlisted duty and leadership position and completed multiple combat deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as Operation Just Cause in Panama, Operation Restore/Uphold Democracy in Haiti, and other special operations contingency missions.
I wish that I had known him because his example stands in stark contrast to many of the sergeant majors that I have known.
