92y Supply Specialist (Former Employee) –  Raeford, NCJuly 21, 2018
I learned a lot of information about being in the military from my experiences with the Army National Guard and being able to serve my country proudly. The hardest part of serving was that of having a lot of down time and leaving me sometimes with idle hands. I enjoyed working with people and learning things from the more experienced people in The Guard.

It's Ok if You're a Civilian
Family Assistance Specialist (Former Employee) –  Reno, NVJuly 17, 2018
If you know nothing about military life and how to work with military personnel, then you should not try to work for them. It is like being in a special and elite club. Officers wear their rank 24/7! It is not an environment for the weak.
