This week’s Ally & Andy American Warrior is Gary Myers. Gary is originally from Mercer, Pa but currently lives in Meadville, Pa for work as an HVAC Installer.
He was in the United States Marine Corps in the Infantry from 2002-2010. He was stationed in Camp Lejeune,NC with 1st Battalion 6th Marines as well as 29 Palms, CA with Urban Warfare Training Center, and 2nd Battalion 7th Marines. He has been deployed to both Afghanistan and Iraq with 1/6. Gary was honorably discharged in 2010.
Gary says that what he loves about the Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania areas is that we have the best all-around fans of sports and fans of music. He uses music to help calm him when he’s feeling anxious or antsy. Toby Keith’s music has been a big part of his life, and in the last 6 years, he has been on stage with Toby 5 times. That’s why he loves this area.
