He arrived to the 2nd Bn., 3rd SFG (A), in August 2013 and was assigned to Company C and deployed shortly after in support of Operation Enduring Freedom-Afghanistan. This was his first deployment to Afghanistan.

Lee’s military education includes Basic Combat Training, the Basic Airborne Course, the Warrior Leader’s Course, the Advanced Leader’s Course, the Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape Course, and the Special Forces Qualification Course.

Lee’s awards and decorations include the Army Commendation Medal, the Army Achievement Medal, the Army Good Conduct Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Iraqi Campaign Medal with two Campaign Stars, the Global War on Terrorism Medal, the Noncommissioned Officer Professional Development Ribbon, the Army Service Ribbon, the Overseas Service Ribbon, the Basic Parachutist Badge and the Special Forces Tab.
