Well, I'm about a month or so out from once again being part of California's National Guard recruiting force. I've spent the last year or so on a deployment to Kosovo as a radio broadcaster. I 'd never have guessed that I'd actually be broadcasting to over a million people from five different stations. I had zero training in the broadcasting field but I landed the job and had tons of fun doing it. I met some truly amazing people while there, people that I'll remember for the rest of my life. This deployment changed me for the better. It once again showed me that anything is possible and how truly fortunate I am to call myself a soldier and member of the California National Guard.
I received a text from my soon to be boss, we'll call him Master Sergeant "B", saying to get my packet (application) prepared to submit. I know I'll be hired, I have recommendation letters from Master Sergeant B, my OIC and a Sergeant Major. I'm really not a cocky person, as a matter of fact I consider myself to be very modest (Really!). I just know they see how much heart and effort I pour into my job everyday. Did I say before I deployed to Kosovo I recruited with the guard for 5 years? Best 5 years of my life.
