A new career

Sgt John Jackson

CAMP LEATHERNECK, Afghanistan — Growing up in southern Georgia, Cpl. Cameron Reed enjoyed the outdoors. The avid hunter got a job shortly after graduating high school working on a plantation that grew a habitat designed to attract quail.

While Reed enjoyed working on the plantation and still enjoys hunting, the 24-year-old Marine wanted to try his hand at a different career outside the small town of Thomasville.

“I figured I would do something different for a while,” said Reed, a motor transport operator with Regimental Combat Team 7. “I really enjoyed working on the plantation, but I wanted to try something new.”
