A Corporal in the United States Marine Corps transitioning to a law enforcement position. Offers expertise in security, leadership, integrity, situational awareness, decision making, and delegation.
I was honorably discharged from the Marines in May 2013. I deployed with the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit where we provide a security force in the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea. I also completed a non-lethal training course where we learned riot training and tactics, oleoresin capsicum spray training, taser training, non-lethal weapons training, and baton training. I also went through the Oleoresin Capsicum spray course where I was sprayed in the face and had to run a non-lethal training course. After completion of the course I was certified in Oleoresin Capsicum spray level 1.
As a section chief I was responsible for the upkeep, inventory, and cleanliness of 4 to 7 million dollars worth of gear and equipment. I made sure all the section gear was accounted for, along with all serialized equipment that belonged to the section. I also made sure that the howitzer weapon system we used was properly maintained and able to keep up with the tasks of firing. As a section chief I was responsible for the safety and health of 6 to 9 Marines. I had to make sure the Marines on my section were taking care of and were in good health.
As a Marine Non-Commissioned Officer I was responsible for the health, safety, and well being of all the Marines junior to me. Problems the junior Marines had they brought to my attention and I helped them fix the problem. As a Non-Commissioned Officer I was charged with teaching and mentoring them in the Marine Corps core values and teaching them how to properly do the job they signed up for. We as Non-Commissioned Officers are looked at as road map for junior Marines to follow to help them through the trials of being a U.S. Marine.
Learned the fundamentals of working and maintaining all gear and equipment pertaining to a artillery section. Learned how to run a section with anywhere from 6 to 9 Marines at a time to complete all operational tasks. These tasks ranged from firing the weapon system to moving the weapon system from point A to point B in a quick and timely manner.
