Freedom Fighter: Greg Evans

Greg Evans is Director of Personnel and Technology at Van Independent School District. However, Evans spent much of the past year on the battlefront. As a Corpsman in the Naval Reserve, Evans was assigned to duty in Iraq and soon found himself in some of "Operaton Iraqi Freedom's" most heated battles. After serving six months in Iraq, Evans returned home in April to a hero's welcome at Van Highschool. The firsthand lessons Evans brought back to Van students went way beyond tales of war and fighting. He told them about th birth of freedom in Iraq and how the Iraqis are taking ownershuip in their country's future. While Greg Evans says his experience in Iraq is one he'll never forget, he does admit that it's good to be home.
