Today’s Exchange #VetforLife associate & 23rd of the month is Sherri Rinker, #USArmy 1991-1999, #USArmy
At the beginning of my service, I was #CombatMedic with the #ARNG of #Oklahoma . Our insignia was of the Thunderbird and our motto was “Semper Anticus” (Always Forward). I helped deploy my unit in support of the #GulfWar from 1991-92.
Once my time was completed in the ARNG, I chose to go active myself. Due to the overwhelming amount of combat medics already on active duty, I was required to change, so I decided that if I couldn’t “fix” people,” I would “fix” equipment. My active duty position was depot maintenance/light-wheeled vehicle mechanic. From my training at #AberdeenProvingGrounds , #Maryland ., I then went on to #FortLewis , #Washington , working in the ordnance depot repairing engines, differentials, transmissions, transfer cases, etc., from #HMMWVs on up to nine-ton tractors.
From there, I was deployed to Korea, attached to the 595th Maintenance Company where our primary mission was non-combatant Evacuation Operation. I completed my military service in 1999.
Since coming with #AAFES , I have deployed to #Afghanistan for #OperationEnduringFreedom from June 2014 through December 2015 and have returned to Afghanistan in September 2017 until September 2018.
