Staff Sgt. Christy R. Gipson

"I receive tremendous support from my entire family on my choice to stay in the Army Reserve," said Staff Sgt. Christy Gipson.

What we want out of life is not always what we get. In 2004, Staff Sgt. Christy Gipson enlisted into the Army on active duty. After a few years of a less than positive experience, she decided not to reenlist.

“About six months to a year before my ETS I finally had some positive leaders that really made me enjoy the Army,” she said. “They still couldn’t convince me to stay on active duty but encouraged me to join the Army Reserve.”

Now she is a Drill Sergeant with the 1st 354th, Drill Sgt Unit, 95th Division at Fort Smith, Arkansas and loves her job.

“The opportunity to serve my country and the benefits from the Army Reserve is what promoted me to reenlist,” Staff Sgt. Gipson noted. “I now have a full-time job because of the Army Reserve and am attending college using my education benefits.”

Staff Sgt. Gipson’s husband is a supporting element to her career. Michael, and their daughter Ashley, are proud of the accomplishments and commitment Staff Sgt. Gipson has made as an Army Reserve Soldier.
