Right now, it’s just me. My name is Guy. After serving in the US Army for over 17 years, I am a disabled veteran married to a disabled veteran. My wife was in the Air Force for 4 years and the Army for 6 years. We love the camaraderie that is ever present in the military, and want to continue that with veterans from all services across the country.
I joined just after September 11, 2001. My job in the US Army was as a military intelligence (MI) analyst. The interesting part is that I grew up with rifles and weapons so shooting in an expert manner, was not difficult to me. In basic training, I qualified as an expert on my assigned M16A2 rifle. I believe that it was this expert marksmanship that led me to have the unconventional MI career that I had. I served with the 18th Airborne Corps, 3rd Inf Div, III Corps, and many more. Multiple deployments during the Global War on Terrorism, Airborne training requirements, and the general abuse that I submitted my body to during my military career led me to become the disabled veteran I am today. I say this though so you will understand that I wouldn’t give up one day I have spent during my military career. I learned what it means to be a leader. I gained invaluable experience in the motivation of personnel. I don’t claim to be a professional business guru, or lifestyle guru, but what I have learned from my own mistakes as well as the mistakes of others has given me insight I hope to pass on to others so they don’t make the same ones.
