Jason White

President/CEO

Jason White earned the title of United States Marine in 2004 and quickly moved to the Marine Reconnaissance community. Jason completed the Army Airborne Course and S.E.R.E school prior to deploying to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2006 where he served as a turret gunner throughout the deployment and was awarded the Navy Achievement Medal for Valor and Navy Commendation Medal. 

 

After Returning Home, Jason moved to First Force Reconnaissance and served as an assistant team leader.  He went on to complete the Navy Combat Divers Course and the British Arctic Warfare Training Course in Norway.  Due to increased operations in Afghanistan, his unit was rapidly deployed to Helmand Province, where he again served with honor and distinction, earning the Navy Commendation Medal for valor. 

 

Following his second return home, Jason conducted a lateral move to the Counterintelligence, Human Intelligence (CI/HUMINT) field and completed the rigorous, six-month, CI/HUMINT Training Course in Virginia. Jason promptly deployed again to Afghanistan for his third tour in the fall of 2008 and quickly went to work developing intelligence assets and building a source network that would aid in creating a peaceful environment in Marjeh, Afghanistan and the surrounding region. 

 

Though he engaged in combat operations for much of the deployment, he requested to extend his deployment and support another Team in the Sangin region of Afghanistan.  Jason served an additional four months supporting his first designated unit, 3rd Battalion 5th Marines, where many of his bootcamp and infantry school brothers were stationed. During this tour he supported an infantry platoon who engaged the enemy for over twelve hours resulting in multiple casualties. After the platoon commander was injured, he provided direct support utilizing air assets and coordinated casualty evacuations while under direct fire. After numerous, unsuccessful landing attempts by the casualty evacuation helicopter due to heavy enemy fire, Jason carried wounded Marines over open desert to meet the helicopter at the only viable and "safest" landing zone. For his actions was awarded the Bronze Star for Valor.

 

Jason’s final Afghanistan tour was as the CI/HUMINT staff billet and supported forward deployed teams across Afghanistan based on his personal experience and knowledge of the complex environment.  Additionally, he was the counter intelligence lead investigator for the 2011 insurgent attack on the Joint Operations Base, Camp Bastion and served as a tactical interrogator and conducted numerous raids in support of U.S. and British Special Forces.  

 

After four intensive combat tours and several injuries related to his service, Jason decided to end his active duty service and complete his degree in Business Management.  He is currently working towards his Master’s in business and building the Veteran non-profit, Surplus Americans, in the support of veterans from all generations who served America proudly.  Jason's passion for country and our military led him to found OPCON Industries with the goal of providing the best in military training for the next generation of war fighters.
