Collins was then part of Operation Iraqi Freedom, working alongside Polish GROM to secure the port of Umm Qasr and Az Zubayr on 2003, earning him a promotion to Sergeant. Collins partook in many more raids with the 15th MEU in Iraq until his transfer to the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit on 2005.
In 2013, he was re-deployed in a peacekeeping operation in Somalia, to stop a terrorist uprising in the Horn of Africa. His courageous actions earned him a "fast-promotion" to Second Lieutenant.
