I was a part of Ukiah High School’s graduating class of 2016. I am currently stationed at Fort Bliss in El Paso, TX as a 25U(Signal Support Systems Specialist). I started my journey in August of 2016 where I attended Basic Combat Training at Fort Jackson, South Carolina and continued training for my job on Fort Gordon, Georgia. I joined the Army because I wanted to experience the world and learn things that wouldn’t be taught in a classroom setting. This last year and a half I have learned more than I ever expected to and it continues to amaze me every day with how far I’ve come.
