Other Comments:
I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 1985.  Highlights from my Marine Corps years are above, or you can see more at this link:

After my honorable discharge from the USMC in August 1991, I enlisted in the Florida Army National Guard as an Infantry Sergeant with C Company, 3rd Battalion, 53rd Infantry, Florida Army National Guard.  In August 1992 I enrolled in the Army ROTC at the Florida State University (FSU).  At FSU I was enrolled in the Simoultaneaous Membership Program (SMP), acting as a Cadet with A Company, 3rd Battalion while a student at Florida State.

I began my Army career in the Infantry.  While a Company Commander, I had 17 years towards retirement and I began to think about what I would do for a living after I retired.  Subsequently I requested to change my job to that of a Network Management Officer, 53A.  Immediately after company command I went to Fort Gordon for training.  Since there is no "Network" branch, I keep my infantry crossed rifles.

The rest of my Army career is here on this page.
