Staff Sgt. Patrick J. Flynn

Why Do I Stay Army Reserve?

“I just love what we do as soldiers and what we stand for, it is one of the things that make me who I am. I want to continue to serve my Country and I think its every one’s responsibility to contribute to our Nations success.”

Staff Sergeant Patrick Flynn

I enlisted into the United States Military 8 July 1985 as a 92Y30, Unit Supply Specialist, with a secondary MOS of 12B30, Combat Engineer. I prepare and maintain supply records, manage and inventory all assigned equipment, order and or purchase all items required to keep the 2nd Battalion, 309th Regiment, 72nd Field Artillery, 1st Army Division, East, operational to include meals and lodging.

My include the Army Service Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terror Ribbon, Good Conduct Medal, NCOES Ribbon x2, Army Achievement Medal x5, Qualification Badge, Sharpshooter M-16&9mm. Drivers Badge Wheeled.

My secondary MOS is 12B30 Combat Engineer, where I emplace and remove fortifications for offensive or defensive tactical operations to include IED and countermine operations and demolitions and assists in bridging operations and route clearance. I believe that my civilian occupation incorporates both of my MOS’s to a certain degree, I am a heavy equipment operator and heavy equipment transporter working on a multitude of excavation projects from land clearing to site preparation to utilities installation. I also coordinate all logistics operation related to trucks and equipment.

I am a prior service Active Duty Soldier; I missed the Army and wanted to serve again. I can’t think of a better way than defending my country. That way my grandchildren will hopefully have the same safety and security that I have enjoyed.

I was born in Brunswick, ME. I graduated from Pemberton Township High School in Pemberton, NJ, 19 June 1986.

My hobbies; I just spending time with my family.
