Combat Engineer, Oregon National Guard, Dallas, OR — 1992-1995 As a combat engineer, I was trained to support combat units, mainly by defending them.

Looking at a situation, calculating the enemies actions, and using such information to help our objective were some skills I was taught while serving in the National Guard.
