Corporal Warren McCain (retired) joined the United States Marine Corp in June of 2004 because he wanted “more for his family” and to “make it a career”. He served his country for almost six years as a Marine until his honorable discharge in October 2010. He was stationed at Camp Lejeune for his entire period of service and served a tour in Al Anzabar Province, Iraq. On April 17, 2005, while involved in an enemy firefight in Iraq, his legs and left side were riddled with shrapnel resulting from an enemy grenade explosion. While serving his country, he received the Purple Heart, Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal (2nd Award), Combat Action Ribbon (Iraq), Sea Service Deployment Ribbon, Global War On Terrorism Expeditionary Medal (Iraq), Golbal War on Terrorism Service Medal, National Defense Service Medal, and the Rifle Qualification Badge. Today, he is still required to walk with a cane and knee brace and continues to experience symptoms resulting from post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury.
Warren McCain, his wife Shemeka, and their daughter Zhane' were awarded their mortgage-free home located in Fayetteville, NC, on Saturday Oct. 15, 2011.
McCain's future goals include working on his career and using his experiences to help others who are going through similar experiences. And “continue to be the best husband, father, and student he can possibly be”.
Thank You for all that you have sacrificed for our country! God Bless you and Congratulations on the new home!!
