Why I Stay Army Reserve
“Although my service takes me away from my family and requires sacrifice, I cannot imagine doing anything else at this point in my life. I want to continue to learn, to develop my Army career, and to set an example of commitment and dedication.
I have mentored and counseled many young Soldiers’ about reenlisting. My experience as an employer, employee, and business owner give added credibility to our conversations. The health benefits, tuition assistance, opportunities for mobilization, classes for career progression and a supportive command climate usually seals the deal!”
