Grey retired from the United States Marine Corps after 12 honorable years of service in July of 2016 due to wounds and injuries sustained from combat operations overseas. He started his career at the age of 21 enlisting as a communications electronics technician. After two years in Okinawa, Japan, he requested a lateral move to a more challenging military occupation, Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD). As a Sergeant, he graduated and moved to Camp Lejeune, North Carolina to 2D EOD Company in 2008. He deployed twice to Ramadi and Baghdad, Iraq and Helmand, Afghanistan in support of combat operations neutralizing explosive threats and exploiting the enemy. Upon Sergeant Jewett’s return from Afghanistan in 2010 he put orders into Marine Special Operations Command (MARSOC) to be assessed for selection to Special Operating Forces EOD. He was selected and immediately placed on a Team, MSOT 8222. On his team he would spend the next 5 years as the team’s dedicated explosives expert and lead exploitation technician. Over the course of those 5 years, he was promoted to Staff Sergeant and attended dozens of schools for specialized skill-sets. He flew unmanned aerial systems (UAS) for close reconnaissance and surveillance, trained host nation forces, worked with special missions, excelled in weapons and tactics, close quarter battle and communications. He was a force multiplier up until he was benched for medical concerns. Left with no other option, Mr. Jewett retired early with 8 years left to 20. In every effort to move forward, Mr. Jewett has been involved with several veteran start-ups, worked multiple government contracts training Marines, and assisted Law Enforcement with exploitation capabilities and analysis. Most recently Mr. Jewett has started a media production company in Colorado with two other veterans and a talented media producer. Together they form Athena’s Owl, specializing in aerial photography with the use of UAS, or drones as we call them. They have come together from a love of drones to provide professional cinema quality media, and they’re on the right track.
