Military Career

IMG_0129_edited_edited.jpg

I am an a military veteran, and come from a long line of military service, and love for this Country, dating back to the Vietnam War. Our oldest son is currently serving as a senior NCO and our 2nd oldest is a veteran. 

 

During my enlistment, I served as an ADSW Recruiter as well as a member and a leader within a Combat Brigade Team, and Rapid Deployment Force.

Among the most powerful lessons learned from serving in the military, was maintaining a tenacious spirit along with a positive attitude in the face of challenging circumstances, motivation, leadership, teamwork, political skills and never surrender attitude.​
