Dynamic workplace. Opportunity to advance. Opportunity to lead our soldiers.
BATTALION COMMANDER (Former Employee) – Iowa City, IA – February 10, 2016
This was a great experience as there was no typical day. Our mission was rewarding, in knowing the part we played in the Global War on Terror, and the many state disasters in which we provided support.
The Iowa National Guard is an outstanding team, and the leadership provides junior, and senior leaders the latitude to perform their missions in the best manner possible.
Our soldiers were some of the best in the Army, to include active and reserve components.
The hardest part of the job was the family separation for deployments.
The most rewarding was working to develop our junior enlisted into quality Non-Commissioned Officers (Sergeants), and our junior officers into senior leaders.
Ability to do things you just can't do in the civilian world
