Where did you serve and what did you do?
I served in the U.S. Army Reserve and Army Active Duty from 1983-2009. I was a Personnel Management Specialist and Chaplain Assistant. I deployed to Iraq with the 1st Armored Division from May 2003 to April 2004. I was stationed overseas in Germany (2 tours: Heilbronn and Baumholder/Ansbach), Fort Clayton, Panama, and Fort Buchanan, Puerto Rico. In CONUS I was stationed at Fort Ord, CA, Fort Campbell, KY, Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD, and Fort Knox, KY.
How are you #StillServing?
I’m currently employed with the St. Louis VA Regional Office assigned to the Customer Support Division. My duties include receiving veteran requests for records and ensuring that the veterans’ documents are sent to veterans in a timely manner.
Why do you do it?
I enjoy working for the VA because I get to assist veterans. Sending veterans their requested documents in a timely manner can ensure that veterans are able to file disability claims or other services.
