Where did you serve and what did you do?
I recently retired as a 1SG after proudly serving in the Army National Guard for 37 years. My first 18 years was a traditional soldier serving with the 1-115th INF, 29th ID(L) before serving 19 more years on active duty status, primarily with recruiting and retention. I also deployed with HQ, 29th ID as a G3/5 Senior OPS NCO for OIR-OSS.
How are you #StillServing?
Since retirement almost two years ago, I became an elementary school teacher in a Title I school in my county.
Why do you do it?
I chose to become a teacher, especially in a needy school, in order to pay back the gift of mentorship that I received as a child. I believe it is important to be a positive male role model, particularly for those students who may not have one in their lives.
