I joined the military one month after High School graduation and never looked back. My first 5 years in the US Army was as a Special Electronic Devices Repairer, repairing all manner of electronic equipment including but not limited to night vision goggles, thermal viewers, mine detectors, chemical agent monitors and position azimuth determining systems. I got out of the military with an eye on college, but the military life was something I missed too much. After signing back up a new career was chosen, Combat Medic. I did that for 6 years and greatly enjoyed my time as a medic, all of that time being spent in either Infantry or Armor units. However 11 years was going to be it for my military career as a long-suffering knee injury finally ended my time in the Army. Before going back to the US my Wife and I (who I had met and married while stationed in Germany) decided to stick it out in Germany for awhile as a DOD Civilian. It was not meant to be and we came back to the US. 2 years in a Vocational School in Kansas where I furthered my electronic skills and even added a few that I enjoy but have very little practical experience in (Hello PLC's) and which all led to a change in career yet again, as I was became a Communications Technology technician working for Union Telephone. 6 years later and a desire to spend more time with my family and less time tied to a job that took most of my free time lead to yet another career change, to a Trona mine in southwest Wyoming where I am currently employed by Genesis Alkali as a Mono Plant South Control Helper, a job that challenges me physically and intellectually. I am happily married and have 7 children ranging in ages from 25 to 5.
In my personal opinion, you do not decide that you are a leader, those around you willing to follow you decide that. I have always preferred to lead from within, not above. In my 11 years in the military and my 16 years in the workforce following that I have seen many leadership styles. The only one that seemed to inspire people to achieve more than they thought possible is having a leader who truly feels like he is a part of the team, not the head of it.
