1LT William Treadway was born and raised in Houston, Texas. He attended The Kinkaid School and graduated in 2005 spending most of his extracurricular time warming the bench for the football team. After high school, he entered The United States Military Academy at West Point, New York and finished in May of 2009, in the lower quartile. Not exactly the Dean’s list, but they call him “Sir” just like the high speed valedictorian.
With college in the rear view, the newly commissioned Army Officer moved to the Land of Good Bourbon where he was schooled at the Armor Officer Basic Course. Upon completion, he settled out in Kansas and took control of a Scout Platoon in April of 2010. The unit trained during the summer in the Mojave for a deployment to Iraq that never happened. He was sent the next January to Tigerland, again to train for an Iraq deployment. Five days in, they were told it wasn’t happening. Fourty-five days later he found himself and his platoon on a plane bound for Kandahar, Afghanistan.
