Perry Jefferies served as a First Sergeant with the Army’s 4th Infantry Division in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom. After deploying to Iraq and traveling with the cavalry through the Sunni Triangle, his unit moved to the Iran – Iraq border and set up Camp Caldwell, future home of the New Iraqi Army. Often frustrated by the absence of priority on planning and basic Soldier needs, he has spoken out about the lack of basic necessities such as food, water, and repair parts. Previously a prison guard in Texas, he says that in many cases, Soldiers are treated worse than the convicts he used to guard.

Perry joined the Army after enlisting in the Texas National Guard and served in Korea, Germany, and the United States before deploying to Iraq. He has served in infantry, armor, and cavalry units and was an instructor at the Armor School at Fort Knox. He retired in 2004 and was awarded the Bronze Star and the Legion of Merit.
