Genomic Technologist II, Molecular Pathology
The U.S. Army grounded me and made me into the man I am today. From both sports and the Army, I learned the value of teamwork and how to strengthen the weaknesses within us. I was given goals and the tools to achieve them.
The Army trained me for the job I am currently filling within a clinical laboratory. I appreciated working with all the diverse people I served with and learning about each one of them. This is something that has stuck with me years after I left the Army.
