A little about myself.  My name is Chris and I'm ex-National Guard member with nine years of service in the Iowa Army National Guard, specifically as part of the esteemed 168th Infantry, Red Bull division. Additionally, I proudly served in the Army Reserves in Kansas for two years straight out of high school before joining 168th. I'm excited to have you here on my blog, where I aim to share my passion for the military and provide valuable insights and resources to military enthusiasts, active-duty personnel, veterans, and anyone interested in the world of the military.

Throughout my time in the Army National Guard and the Army Reserves, I had the privilege of working alongside dedicated service members from various branches. These experiences deepened my admiration for the military as a whole and instilled in me a profound sense of respect for the sacrifices made by service members and their families.

On this platform, we will explore a wide range of topics related to military life. From discussions on military lifestyle and training techniques to insights into deployments, historical events, and the unique challenges faced by service members, there is something here for everyone interested in the military world.

By creating a community through this blog, we can engage in meaningful discussions, share our experiences, and learn from one another's perspectives. Together, we will celebrate the remarkable resilience, bravery, and patriotism that define the military community.

Join me on this exciting journey as we delve into the rich history, inspiring stories, and the profound impact of the military on our society. Whether you're a current or former service member, a military supporter, or someone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of the military, I extend a warm invitation for you to be a part of this community.

Thank you for visiting my website, and I look forward to connecting with you as we explore and appreciate the diverse aspects of the military.

Best regards,
