My name is Gwain Christopher Shells, and I am the Vice President Omega Kappa Lambda (OKL) Military Fraternity Incorporated. I am also one of the original seven Founders of the fraternity founded on September 29, 2020 and looking forward to this journey that we are about to endure. Our mission is to provide help and support to our fellow veterans and communities throughout the world. We are here to be role models for our servicemembers, community, and set the example for those that look to follow when needing a helping hand.
I joined the United States Army (Active Duty) at the age of 18 on June 17, 2003 and enlisted as a 92Y/Unit Supply Specialist. I have been stationed in Bamberg, Germany (54th Engineer Battalion), were I completed 10 years of service, along with two deployments to Iraq and one to Afghanistan. Upon leaving Germany in 2013, I was stationed in Fort Leonard, MO with the 14th Military Police Brigade, 795th Military Police Battalion for the next four years. Finally, my last stop was Fort Stewart, GA, I arrived January 5, 2017 to 385th Military Police Battalion, 546th Military Police Company. One month later I found myself conducting a rotation in South Korea. After returning from Korea I was medically retired two years later August 26, 2020 as a Sergeant First Class (SFC).
As a Founders of OKL, I can truthfully say that suicide awareness, homeless veterans, blood drives, and other concerns that affects our community is the reasons why we founded this fraternity. I invite those of you that are ready for challenge and ready to step forward with Brothers that are ready and willing to put in work then think about Omega Kappa Lambda Military Fraternity Incorporated. We are the future and ready to work
