Army, 16 Years

I HIT 16 Years in the US Army on October 3rd, 2010 (only 4 years left), and it gets better every year. I have been station at FT Jackson, SC / FT Benjamin Harrison, IN / FT Hood, TX / Conn Barracks, Schwenifurt, GE / FT Benning, GA / Valdosta, GA / Deland, FL / Daytona Beach, FL / Valdosta, GA / & now Jacksonville, FL.... I am a Master Trainer for the US Army Jacksonville Recruiting Battalion in J...acksonville, FL..... Call me Toll-Free (1-877-302-7727) and say HI...... I was also deployed from DEC95-NOV96 to Bosnia in support of Operation Joint Endeavor...... I have met many famous people throughtout my career. I guess the highlight would be meeting Mel Gibson & Sam Elliot while being an extra in the movie "We Were Soldiers" when it was being filmed at FT Benning, GA..... I will be adding more pictures of the famous people I have meet in the future. I will also be updating my videos as well..... When I joined the US Army, I was a Personnel Adminstration Specialist (Clerk, I wanted nice easy job indoors...lol). In 2002, I volunteered to be an US Army Representative because I wanted to help people & tell the Army Story. As a U.S. Army Representative I have helped many men & women with their lives by showing them how the US Army will hopefully make their life easier. What makes my job so rewarding is when a man or woman returns from graduating Basic Training & Advance Individual Training and they look me in the eye, standing tall, looking good and say to me "Thank you for helping me".
