United States Armed Forces

Joining the Army has been one of the most selfless things I've had the privilege of doing to not only serve Our Great country but to serve my own family and friends. After joining I was able to take the opportunity in advancing my self through the ranks and also advance my knowledge on what else the service had to offer and changed my profession in the service.  In 2009-2010 I was deployed to Iraq for a year of duty and took advantage of the experience in  bettering myself in taking a brand new look on what life in the States had to offer. After I returned home from my tour of duty I was able to transition over to my new job, I found myself in a wonderful and very family orientated unit located here in Idaho, 321st EN BN out at gowen field. They quickly assisted in advancing me in grade and job title to the required titles needs to proficiently achieve the mission at hand. I am still proudly serving at the 321st EN BN.

Jack of all trades 

El Gallo Giro

So lets take a moment to understand the title of this job being "Jack of all trades". I walked into a Mexican restaurant asking for a job, letting them know I would do what ever it took for me to gain employment there, the owner said OK after my first attempt. I started working there as a dish washer, however I was so proficient at the job that I always found my self waiting on dishes. After the second day of waiting for dishes I asked the crew if they needed any assistance in their daily jobs? The guys in charge of preparing the food for the day said yes they needed help. From that day forward I was in charge of doing all the dishes and then assisted with prep every day for about 5 days. On the 6th day we had gotten so proficient at that the prep crew and I found our selves just waiting for the next thing. The owner came to me the following day and asked me if I would like to help in the kitchen when they were busy, so I gladly accepted. So by the time I knew it I came in did the dishes, helped prep and then was cooking in the kitchen. I wouldn't say I was the reason for this success but rather with the proper motivation and cohesiveness from the crew there we were able to increase our ability over a short period of time 10 fold.
