These select abilities have afforded me the opportunity to develop into a seasoned and well-respected leader among my peers and the superiors I worked with throughout my military service.
    Overall, I believe my experience and enthusiasm will be alignment with just about any company's current needs. I am excited to learn and grow as a professional in a dynamic industry, while producing for a reputable company. I have a drive and desire to succeed for the benefit of the company.
