United States Army National Guard
I am currently a Sergeant (E-5). I am the team leader of 1st Platoon, 4th Squad, 2nd Team. I am the first-line supervisor of three soldiers. I have many duties as an Infantryman. Some of them include: using anti-personnel and anti-tank mines, using electrical and non-electrical demolition charge, using night-vision sights, using communication equipment, calling for indirect fire, evaluating terrain, selecting weapon emplacements, using maps and map overlays, finding elevation and grid azimuths, leading an infantry team in combat, and training subordinate personnel. I also work with my soldiers under me to help them further their military and civilian careers. When my soldiers perform under the standard, I correct their actions with physical and/or mental punishment. So far, in my own military career I have received the following medals: Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal, and Army Good Conduct Medal.
