SPC Brandy Good
I served on active duty right out of high school. I took a 12 year break and then joined the Guard. I missed serving and the family atmosphere of a military unit. Serving in your own community is a unique opportunity. In the Guard you have choices about what unit you join. As someone who served full time, I like the balance of civilian life and the Guard together.
SFC Brandyn Chase
I served four years as a Cavalry Scout in the 4th Infantry Division , U.S. Army. After my deployment to Iraq, my time was up so I left to pursue college. I achieved my degree but before that, I quickly had the opportunity to become a part of the Guard's Active Guard Reserve (AGR) program. I have enjoyed being a full-time Soldier again but this time I get to serve in my hometown of Eugene, Or.
