USMC - 1/26/98 through 1/25/02 .... Inactive reserve duty until 5/16/05

MOS - 3521 Motor Transport Diesel Mechanic

Started out working on HMMWVs (Hummers) for two weeks, then (with no schooling...lol) they moved me to working on the LVS for about 1 year. Then I went back to HMMWVs for 1 week, and got moved to working on the 5-ton trucks after that (for about 4 or 5 months). Then I worked in the tool room (due to injury) for about 1-1/2 years. In June of 2001, we moved shops. I worked on HMMWVs again for 2 days, then I was put in Quality Control.

I got out as a Lance Corporal (E-3) because the battalion personnel kept losing my paperwork (I lost count how many times that happened). Otherwise, I would've been a Sergeant (E-5).
