Sgt. Maj. Mike Burke has been fighting the forces of evil for over 25 years as a U.S. Marine. With a background in the infantry, he has spent more time overseas than in the continental United States. He has served combat tours with 3rd Battalion 3rd Marines and during the Arab Spring conducted a number of embassy reinforcement missions with FAST Company.
