A complete place in order to learn and grow into a great leader.
Career Counselor/ Recruiter (Former Employee) – Hartford, CT – November 6, 2013
I have been in the service for 23 years and it has taught me leadership values as a leader and one who was led. It has taught me core values that is important in life outside of the military. I have learned the value of respect, honesty, integrity, selfless service, honor. I've learned how to seek self initiative and how to listen as well as delegate authority train to standards and never accept defeat by remembering that the mission comes first then you can relax. Balancing time through time management in order to have time for family and self in order to be a better individual at the job in the morning. The most important part of the job to me was helping those who were like me get to where I was when I left off a soldier with 23 years of honorable service. Making a difference in a soldiers life where they can say if it wasn't for me that they will not be where they are today. That I made a difference in that soldiers life is the bets feeling ever.

A typical duty day starts off at 6am and i begin to preform a service to a military vehicle either tracked or wheeled to obtain mission capable status. The day is never dull, fellow soldiers are there to help in any situation whether finishing up a service or providing a helping hand in a major repair. the management is very well organized and very respectful. The shop is like one big family and everyone works well with others.

My time with the National guard has been very fun. We know how to joke and get things done at the same time. The people are like a tightly knit family. We always enjoy challenges of the different vehicles that are brought in. I also feel like working with the National Guard I have great mechanical skills that can apply to my civilian life.

I wasn't in the guard long enough to provide any meaningful feedback.From what I experienced, it was a positive environment with friendly people. The people there make coworkers feel more like friends or family.

The military has given me experiences I could never have dreamed of. The chance to serve the people of my state and Country in the times it needs us the most. The military has been very good to me and my family and I appreciate the opportunity to serve this great Nation of ours.

Sergeant (E-5) (Former Employee) – Fort Smith, AR – February 16, 2017
The Army took a 17 year old Boy and gave him the skills and confidence it took to succeed. It taught me how to handle different task that life will throw at me. Any Where from Employment, relationships, hard times and of course the battlefield.
Teaches structure, job security, room for advancement.
Sergeant E-5 (Former Employee) – Sand Springs, OK – February 16, 2017
A typical day consisted of going to the field staying in barricks or sleeping on the ground in a wooded area. I learned my job in artillery of which I gained the extra skill of reading a military map. Management was ok as long as you are liked. I thought that the workplace culture was interesting. It was definitly more of a brotherhood in military culture. The hardest part of the job was being on long deployments away from my family. The most enjoyable part was that we were there for each other.
US Army National Guard soldier (Current Employee) – Puerto Rico – February 16, 2017
The people around my work place is very creative. We learn about personal defense and how to react to possible attacks. Most of our job is to drive trucks so that's what we enjoy the most. I will say that the hardest part of the job is to load heavy equipment but we do it together as a group.
Cannon Crew Member (Former Employee) – Ozark, AR – February 16, 2017
I would say that becoming a soldier helped me mature at a young age and helped me become a more well rounded person. I went through boot camp at age 17 and grew up in a big hurry. Very thankful for thr guard and my brothers I had the pleasure to serve with.
