Stacy Stewart is back from Iraq (and so am I)

August 21, 2008

After nearly 20 months of active duty, Commander Stacy Stewart has returned to his civilian job as a Senior Hurricane Specialist at NOAA’s National Hurricane Center in Miami.

His biggest adjustment is returning to South Florida traffic. “I was used to driving down the middle of the road in a 15,000 pound Hummer with a .50 caliber machine gun and avoiding any kind of debris,” he said.

A 35-year Navy reservist, Stewart was recalled to active duty in January 2007 to aid in the troop surge in Iraq. He was part of the Coalition Army Advisory Training Team, providing advice and mentorship to three Iraqi Army divisions at An Neumaniyah Military Base. That’s 20,000 Iraqi soldiers. He also assisted in the training of three Iraqi brigades.
