Bio 

I first joined the military in 1987, as a Combat Engineer. I served three years and ETS'd. I was recalled in January 1991 for Operation Desert Storm. Again I ETS'd. I came back into the military again in 2006 as a Veterinary Food Inspection Specialist. I just finished my MEB process and on 12 June I will officially be a Disable Veteran. I spent 16 years in between enlistments. Almost 10 of those years, I spent as a R&D Designer. I was blessed to be able to design Mechanical Seals, Industrial filtration Systems and even Medical devices. I am looking forward to entering that field again.

NCOIC
I was a Section NCOIC, responsible for my Soldiers and meeting daily, weekly and monthly food missions. Ensuring food safety and food defense for everyone who shops on Tobyhanna Army Depot. I was almost two hours away from 'the flagpole' and had to solve problems, make decisions and learn without a lot of guidance. My boss had a 'hands off' approach to mentorship.
Jan 1991 - Apr 1991
Combat Engineer
I was recalled for Desert Storm from IRR. Recieved a little blue western union telegram told me to report to Ft. Leonard Wood. We were all divided up from wheeled, Mechanized and light. Well I thought that light sounded the coolest, so I went with those guys. I didn't have to deploy, they took the wheeled and mechanized guys instead. The 'light' guys were given to the Sapper Leadership Course instructors, who provided training.
