United States Army

I joined the Army in 1993.  My first duty assignment was to Ft Hood, Texas where I served as a Food Service Specialist for the 3-6th Calvary Brigade. After their deactivation, I was assigned to the 4-6th Cavalry.  In 1996 I was assigned to the 2nd Brigade in 2ID, Camp Casey Korea, where I served as a Night Baker. My professionalism and expertise in my craft earned me a position in the 158th Aviation regiment at Ft Carson, Colorado where I was the Shift Leader of the Night Bakers. In1998 I wanted to serve in a different capacity, so I changed my MOS to an Administration Specialist.  My next assignments included the 32nd Transportation Company, Ft Carson Colorado.  I truly loved my new job; I excelled and began to learn more about the Army life. I was soon promoted to Senior Personnel Service Sergeant while in the 2-101st Aviation, Regiment at Ft Campbell, Kentucky.  I was next assigned to the USA Research and Material Command at Ft Detrick, Maryland where I served as the Personnel NCOIC.  In 2004 I was selected to serve as the 18th MEDCOM Assistant Inspector General in Yongsan, Korea.  In 2006 I was selected to attend Warrant Officer School. My assignments as a Warrant Officer included the 75th Field Artillery Brigade, Fort Sill, Oklahoma where I was the first AG warrant officer assigned to a Fires brigade. I was next assigned to the 130th Engineer Brigade at Schofield Barracks Hawaii and deployed to Mosul Iraq in 2009.  After my deployment I was assigned to the 516th Signal Brigade in Ft Shafter, Hawaii. My final assignment was as the Warrant Officer Strength Manager for Headquarters, Headquarters Battalion USARPAC located on Ft Shafter, Hawaii.

After 22 years of service I retired from the Army, and I am still serving my community proudly as the Adjutant for the Veterans of Foreign Wars post 9191 located in Killeen, TX.
