What was the most rewarding aspect of your service and how has that impacted who you are today?
My last job was with a group of Marine’s and support unit for Air Force Combat Controllers coming out of Iraq and Afghanistan. My mandate was to ensure that those Marines and Controllers had everything that they needed to be as comfortable as possible, logistically speaking as a senior source and supply chain expert. It was amazing to me how each and every one of them remained optimistic and believed in what they were trying to do. Go work with a wounded warrior if you want to see men and women who are amazingly hard working and grateful for each moment. Working with them put my life, and happiness, into perspective.
