Abstract:

After selection to MSG, the only thing I could think about was becoming a First Sergeant, for it had been a dream of mine for my entire career. With V Corps Headquarters deploying to Iraq in support of OID 05-07, I found myself in the right place at the right time with my chance to become a First Sergeant. Deploying is a difficult time but being the First Sergeant of one of the largest Headquarters in the Army was not just overwhelming but painfully exhausting. Newly developed TIPs and CENTCOM training standards made getting the Corps Headquarters in to theater even harder than originally planned. Once in theater, the rules immediately changed as the Corps Headquarters mission changed and took the role ofMNF-1 Headquarters. The company was successful and did not have a single casualty throughout the one year deployment.
