About Jeremy Stretch
Stretch got his start in networking rather early, having obtained his CCNA certification at age 17 through a vocational program in high school. In 2003, he served a four-year enlistment in the US Air Force as a 3C2X1 tech controller. His duty station for the bulk of this enlistment was Nellis AFB, Las Vegas, NV. Following his honorable discharge from the USAF, Stretch worked for nearly two years as a defense contractor at Camp Korean Village, Iraq, primarily in support of the US Marine Corps (ooh-rah!).
Stretch currently resides on the edge of the Washington, DC metro area in Fairfax, Virginia. He works as a senior network engineer for a large managed services provider.
