Favorite thing about working for the Army: To know that I am part of an organization that makes a difference, not just here at home, but throughout the entire world. I tell my son I work with superheroes who beat up the bad guys and protect us… and that is exactly how I see Soldiers -- as heroes.
What made you want to work for the Army: I was living in Germany trying to figure out what I wanted to do when I grew up… I got a job working in a G-3 shop a month before September 11, and I knew right away that working for the Army was where I was meant to be.
