I have been serving with the Iowa Army National Guard since March of 2004. My career in the military has taken me very far in life with even more potential for the future. I enjoy my job in the Army as a Chinook (CH-47) Helicopter Mechanic. I have been on one deployment in 2008-2009 to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
My current duties in the military are Phase Team leader, in which I supervise the heavy helicopter maintenance. I am also my units FOD (foreign object damage) safety NCO (Non-commissioned Officer). I am proud of what I have accomplished in the military and proud to serve my country.
