"I joined the Army to be continually challenged and I am proud to serve alongside so many other great Americans who continue to challenge me intellectually and physically. Every day I am confronted with dynamic and engaged leaders, motivated Soldiers, and deft peers that ultimately inspire me to perform at my best. I am confident that our highly skilled team can meet the demands of any mission in the Pacific AOR and beyond. Sustain the Force!"

-CPT Robin O'Rourke III, Military Intelligence Officer, Headquarters & Headquarters Company, 84th Engineer Battalion, on why he joined the Army.
