My military journey started after watching several of my friends go off to fight in Desert Storm. In March of 1992, the Air Force finally gave me tickets to fly from Nashville, Tennessee, to Lackland, Texas, so that I could spend some quality time down at boot camp. After finishing my time in boot camp, I was placed on a bus and sent to Goodfellow Air Force Base, in the small town of San Angelo, Texas.
After five months of training, I received my first orders to Chicksands Air Force Base, located in England. Working with the intelligence community took me from England to South Korea and eventually to Maryland where I was fortunate enough to work with the Joint Military Operations at the National Security Agency (NSA). When I finished my military career, I was hired by Hewlett-Packard, Federal Division, and continued to work at the Agency as a contractor to support our troops abroad.
After arriving in Vermont and being lucky enough to join this amazing group at D-H, I found that transitioning from supporting our military troops to supporting our medical personnel was quite easy, because the missions are very similar.
