My name is Carlos Valladares, and I was born in El Salvador and raised in Los Angeles. My family then moved to Charlottesville, Virginia. At age 17 I joined the U.S. Army and shipped out to Ft. Sill, Oklahoma to become a Fire Support Specialist in December of 2001.
My first duty station was Baumholder, Germany where I was attached to the 4th Battalion, 27th F.A, 1st Armored Division. In 2003 I deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. In early 2004 I redeployed stateside to Ft. Stewart, Ga. where I was attached to 2nd Brigade, 3rd Infantry Division and deployed with 3rd I.D. in 2005 back to Iraq. In 2006, I left the Army and began working as a personal security specialist for the U.S. Department of State with Blackwater Security Consulting at the embassy in Baghdad, Iraq. I left contracting briefly in 2009 and began law enforcement work for the Albemarle County Police Department for three years before returning back to Iraq and Afghanistan to support our diplomatic efforts once again. During this time I supervised the physical security for U.S. State Department consulates and annexes in Herat, Afghanistan and Baghdad, Iraq.
I have a B.S in Criminal Justice and a Master’s degree in Public Administration with Penn State. My greatest passion is working with people and meeting new people, I am also an avid baseball and poker fan. In 2015 I had a strong desire to begin a business and after seeing the professionalism and passion within the JDog business model, I chose to bring JDog to Richmond, Virginia. Our work ethic is well in tune with the JDog mission statement to operate the military way – with Respect, Integrity and Trust– we arrive on time, we guarantee our prices and we respect your time and property.
I currently reside in Short Pump and am still serving as a reservist in the U.S. Army, enrolled in Officer Candidate School.
