“I have served on active duty and in the National Guard, I came into the Army Reserves to serve with my uncle I love helping others. I love doing my job for my country. I have been able to experience the world because of the Army. Being a Warrior-Citizens means I get to participate in greats things and one side helps me with the other.”
