James Price spent his youth in Virginia hiking the Appalachian Mountains and misbehaving in school. James spent a decade in the Middle East as a Civilian Contractor for the US DoD, US State Department and various US Intelligence Agencies. In Iraq and Kurdistan James successfully completed over 1000 PSD, Combat Convoy and Secure Material Courier Missions. 

Previously, James worked in the private security industry in Southeast Asia and the United States. In 2015, James proudly volunteered with the KRG Peshmerga Special Forces as a sniper in the trenches outside of Mosul.  

James founded DVM HASF to use the skills he learned working in war zones so he and others could help those in need in places considered too dangerous for other Aid Groups. James spends his off time in the mountains of Virginia at the DVM Team House ‘The Zoo’ shooting guns, smoking cigars, and barbecuing whatever he shot in the backyard.
