Upon completion of his sea duty in May 2006, he reported to Naval Support Facility Diego Garcia for a one-year overseas tour and served as a Ground to Air communication technician. In May 2007 Jason began his career in Naval Special Warfare when he transferred to Special Boat Team 22, assigned as a Combat Service Support Technician for Riverine Troop 4 and deployed to Iraq in support of a Joint Special Operations Task Force.
