Michigan Army National Guard
November 2004 — December 2014
In the Michigan Army National Guard I was trained in task completion, following orders and working as a team member and leader. My deployments to Iraq in 2008 and Afghanistan in 2012-2013 required me to work on a shifting schedule to meet the demands of random missions. Afghanistan in particular was a learning experience in a very kinetic work environment, where the day's task would shift constantly.
