“I love being a Soldier because I feel as though I am part of a team. Every order or action that I execute or make has a direct effect on my company and I am able to see how it benefits not only the unit as a whole but my Soldiers as well. The greatest part of being a logistician is being able to take care of Soldiers. Knowing that no matter how many hours you put in or how many sacrifices you make, that it will be worth it, because those Soldiers will be taken care of and have what they need to perform the mission.”
