A typical work day usually consists of eight hours. The work hours vary during deployment and military readiness training periods. The Army has afforded me many great opportunities in soldiering, as well as, in leadership. It has taught me the value of team spirit and team work. The ability to balance work life and home life is an important asset I gained early in my career. The toughest part of soldiering is when duty causes one to spend lengthy periods of time away from family. However, now-a-days media technology can sometimes make that easier to bare. I enjoyed my military career and attribute, to a large degree, much of my personal and professional growth to experiences I gained as a soldier and as a leader. The most enjoyable part is knowing and understanding the difference that you make during the course of your career, the lives you touch and the people that touch your life.
Education, extended family growth and memorable good times
