CPT Jason Lim always had admiration and respect for men and women who served and sacrificed for their country. He is a native of Baltimore, MD who grew up in an immigrant household with a proud Korean heritage. Every male in his family had served in the ROK (Republic of Korea) military for mandatory service. In the fall of 2001, the class bells had rung and he was sitting in AP Statistics class when his teacher turned on the TV as the second aircraft hit the World Trade Towers. After that day, Jason had decided to attend college at Virginia Tech and join the Corps of Cadets & Army ROTC.
In 2006, CPT Lim commissioned as an Army 2LT and spent 6 years in Active Duty defending this country. He spent his platoon time in Camp Stanley, South Korea as a Truck Platoon Leader of the 46th Transportation Company; the only medium truck company on the entire peninsula.
After his platoon time, he took over the Support Operations Transportation OIC (Officer-in-Charge) for the 194th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion as overseer of all convoy operations for the unit.

From there, he went on to Fort Campbell, Kentucky assigned to the 101st Sustainment Brigade.
