804th Medical Brigade
Your number to shine my boots!!!
In the Army...
I enlisted in the United States Army Reserves in 1998. My MOS was originally classified as 71G however there was a name change and i'm now a 91G (same job). My title was Patient Administration Specialist. I left for basic training on July 9th, 1998. I was in Missouri for 8 weeks Fort Leonard Wood. After basic training I was re-located in Texas. Fort Sam Houston, in San Antonio to be exact. I arrived home from my Advanced Individual Training on 30 October 1998.
During my time served with the US Army Reserves I have done many annual training exercises, as well as "real world" deployments. In March of 2001 I was deployed to Kosovo for Operation Joint Guardian. I was stationed at Camp Bondsteel for about 6 months. We mobilized out of Fort Benning, Georgia. During my time at Camp Bondsteel, in Kosovo, our mission was Peace Keeping. I personally worked as a soldier member of the 399th Combat Support Hospital, from Taunton Mass. I performed duties as a Patient Admin Clerk. It was an eye opening experience, to say the least.
All About My Kosovo Experience
In 2003 I was activated again, under my reserve contract to deploy overseas to Camp Doha, Kuwait. This time in support of the war, and Operation Iraqi Freedom, also known as Operation Enduring Freedom. Here I am working with the 804th Medical Brigade, and my primary duty is to work as Medical Regulator NCO. What that really means is that I coordinate medevacs in the theater of Kuwait. My section coordinates ground and air ambulances to move the injured and sick.
