As the youngest member of my team promoted to the E-5 rank, I was able to lead a team of professionals to accomplish and maintain the highest aircraft readiness status record achieved within our regiment to date. Known as the Army's premier night fighting aviation force, the Night Stalkers worked with the most advanced avionics equipment and pioneered night flight techniques. My Special Operations unit was often the first to work with the latest, most advanced technology before it was ever available in the civilian world, for example GPS, Night Vision (FLIR) and carbon fiber composites. Working in the regiment responsible for aircraft readiness in the field or on base, it was our responsibility to transport and extract the most elite fighting teams in the military (SEALS, Rangers and snipers.) The Army taught me to step out into the unknown without fear and gave me the skills needed to do so successfully. These are the same principles I use today when leading my team. ✪ ✪ ✪ ✪ ✪ ✪ ✪ ✪ U.S.A. Veterans ✪ RVPJuly1-85.indd 25 July 2013 • RV Pro • 25 6/17/13 12:18 PM
