Army National Guard going Active Army


Active member
Throughout all this posting I had it brought to my attention that I forgot to intrduce myself so here goes:

I joined the military in Jun1998. I enlisted in the Army National Guard as a light wheel vehicle mechanic. (63B) I drilled in New Mexico and at the same time I was attending college. I have majored in everything from Electrical Engineering, to Mechanical Engineering, Busniess Adminstration, and Psychology. In Nov 2002 I worked for Gateway Computers I started out as a Technical Support Agent and then I got promoted to a Sales Agent. I was really happy there and then in March 03, I got laid off, because Gateway pulled their contract. Then later that month my unit got activated and I have been on this same mission ever since. I am working in the S-1, which has been very good experience for me.

Throughout my time on active duty I have decided that I want to continue being on the active duty side. My enlistement for the guard is complete 17Jul, so I am just waiting for this mission to end so I can start my new career path. With my experience in the computer world, I hope to which my MOS to 74B, so I can be more of a benifit to the military.

I have been married for a little over year to my high school sweetheart. We had a baby girl August '03, so that has been an amazing experience. I am looking forward to what the future holds in store. I hope I did not bore you too much, but if you made it through this now you know a little more about me. Also you if you made it through this thank you for your time and feel free to comment on anything that I have said.
Welcome to the forum, brah, and good luck with your future on the Active Duty side. Congratulations on your daughter by the way.
