MARK LITTLE REPRESENTS WOUNDED WARRIORS AND PARALYZED VETERANS OF AMERICA AT VETERANS DAY CEREMONY

(NOV/DEC 2009) After President Obama laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier on Veterans Day, it was Phoenix instructor Mark Little’s turn. On behalf of Wounded Warriors and Paralyzed Veterans of America, he placed a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and at the 3rd Infantry Division Memorial in Arlington National Cemetery. Mark, an Iraq war veteran, lost both legs beneath the knee in an IED blast in 2007. Phoenix Training Center, now part of DI’s new business area, Intelligence Training & Solutions, offered him the opportunity to transition to a new career path. He trained in HUMINT – human intelligence. Today, he is a Phoenix Training Center interrogation instructor and faculty member. He has developed a course on IED detection that enhances the Center’s curriculum, and he has put his knowledge and experience to work benefiting others. Mark is a leader in veterans’ affairs, and with rollerblade prosthetics, he covers a lot of ground buoying spirits at Walter Reed Hospital. “I just want to ensure that no generation experiences what our Vietnam era vets did,” he says.
