“I always knew I wanted to be in the Army Reserve; I joined for money for college. I knew I wanted to stay when I became an NCO, a leader of Soldiers and so I can train other Soldiers to become future leaders. I also stay due because of my loyalty and pride in serving this county.
My two must memorable events are attending airborne school and reenlisting on the steps of the National Capital Building.
I encourage others who continue to serve to have pride in what they do; the Army Reserve is a great place to gain experience. Serving has affected my life; I have received great training, great friendships and great employment opportunity. Being a Soldier has made me a more confidence individual and opened up doors to different opportunity. Because I am a Soldier, I watch what I do and say, as to reflect my service in the Army Reserve. Not only am I an American, I’m a guardian of freedom.”
