Sgt. Raymond M. Tanguay

Quality of Life & Family Readiness Conference and National Capitol Reenlistment Ceremony

I enlisted in the Army on 26 June 1986 as a 12N, because I wanted to give back and do something for my country.  I have deployed to a combat zone three times.  The first time was January – June 2003 during the initial push in Iraq.  I deployed twice with the 101st Airborne Division from 2005-2006 and 2007-2008.

During my third deployment, which was my second deployment to Iraq, I was able to teach the local Iraqi people how we cabinets are built.  This was educational for both me and the people who I worked with. These gentlemen learned from me and also taught me about their culture.  We lost the contract with the local company that supplied the workers, which was a shame.

I have also mobilized to Honduras, Puerto Rico, Bosnia, Haiti and Korea.

I am married to Rena Tanguay, who is also the FRG Leader for the 338th Engineers.  Rena and I married ten days prior to my 2007-2008 deployment to Iraq.  Together we have four children:  Matthew is 19 years-old, Megan is 17 years-old, Raymond is 16 years-old, and Rose-Marie is 14 years-old.  Matthew, my 19 year-old son, is also a Soldier in the Army Reserve and we hold the same MOS in the same unit.
