I am David Parker. Currently, I reside in the great state of Texas in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. I joined the SCA to obtain the certiﬁcations and experience necessary to make me a competitive applicant for a Wildland Fireﬁghter apprenticeship. I will serve as a Tactical Unmanned Aerial Systems Operations Technician in the Colorado National Guard in the near future. I am excited about this opportunity to learn and work in our National Forests. I have a great respect for nature and its preservation.
