  • What’s the coolest job on the planet? I guess that depends on who you ask, but I’m gonna venture to say if you’re a Soldier, blowing things up rates pretty high on the cool scale. Even as a little girl, I was always part of the Shenanigan’s my brothers and neighborhood friends were involved in that entailed explosives (typically firecrackers) in a mailbox or two. Don’t judge ‘cause I turned out okay although, some may beg to differ. Anyway, to this day I still remember feeling the excitement of being part of a clandestine team and how empowering it was. So, when I joined the Army and got to throw grenades in basic training and fire-off a 50-Cal. with members of my platoon in PLDC, I was definitely in my element! My chosen path though, both as a Soldier and DA Civilian, was far less volatile and definitely didn’t involve explosions--save for the occasional faulty ink cartridge in the now long defunct dot-matrix old-school office printer. No. Any aspirations I may have had to blow stuff up on the regular, were left behind like a bad MRE on an equally bad FTX. So, here I am, quietly working as a Public Affairs Specialist at the headquarters of the Army’s largest command, writing this blog, and prepping you to join me to read the stories of the amazing men and women, Soldiers and Civilians of FORSCOM who get to do cool stuff every day. My name is Mikie P, and this is “Take 5.” Every month I’ll sit down with someone and (gently) interrogate them into telling me their career story, share it with you in 750 words (give or take) and do so with a candid and lighthearted approach because as serious as serving your country can be-whether in uniform or as a civilian, there are always things that happen along the way that are funny. So, if the stories I share on “Take 5” inspire someone to take the Oath of Enlistment and serve in uniform or inspire a recent college grad to ditch their minimum-wage go-nowhere-job and become a civil servant, then that’s a win, too. So, buckle-up, settle-in, and take about five minutes on Friday, March 1st, for the very first installment of “Take 5” as I share with you the story of Michael Plott, Team Chief for Data Visualization at FORSCOM HQ’s and how he went from being an unappreciated member of the IQ Crew, to supervising fellow DA Civilians responsible for FORSCOM’s web applications. (It’s I-T stuff…only bigger!) See you soon!
