Hello and welcome to Omega Kappa Lambda

It is an honor to serve those who served or still serving, their families and communities. I have always have a passion for serving others, I start it at just 18 years old when I became a police officer in my great island Puerto Rico. At that age I was able to help my community by fighting crime but at the same time helping those in need. I knew then that was my passion, after eight years of hard work and dedication I decided to enlisted onto the greatest military fleet in the world, the United States Navy.

I honorably served 5 years on active duty with multiple deployments on board USS Peleliu, after my active duty contract was over I decided to start a new venture. I became a DOD police officer at Oceanside, Camp Pendleton California. During my short tenure, I was able to do what I truly love, help my military community. Soon after I joined the Department of Justice, Bureau of Prisons as a correctional officer, it has been eight great years and still counting. As navy reservist (15 yrs.) I completed two deployments, one to Bahrain and Africa.

As one of the Founders of Omega Kappa Lambda, I can sincerely say that we have a great passion for community service and help those in need. Suicide awareness, homeless veterans, blood drives and other problems that deeply affects our community is the reasons why we founded OKL. I will encourage you and every other military brother to join us in this great journey.
