As a young Army officer in Operation Desert Storm, founder David Garza was dispatched to carry out a transfer of combat assets to supporting units away from the main unit. During this effort, David’s parent unit moved quickly to the front lines to engage the enemy, leaving him and his small team behind—deep in enemy territory with minimal firepower and without radio contact. Facing this challenge, David had to generate a strategy, a plan, and lead his troops for the next 36 hours back to friendlier surroundings. In doing so, David used a compass, a map, and an early version GPS to maneuver his team back to his parent unit. He arrived just in time to assist in an ensuing tank battle and to evacuate wounded soldiers while under enemy fire, for which he was awarded a Bronze Star Medal and an Army Commendation Medal with “V” device for Valor.
