I want to personally congratulate the Class of 2019 for finishing their first semester of college. Roughly 16 weeks of a completely new environment can be difficult for anyone and I commend everyone who ventured off from home to further their education.

For those who saw debt already start to pile up, I want to remind you that the Louisiana National Guard is still a viable option to help lighten the finically burden that comes with being a college student.

🤔Here are 5 reasons why you should consider joining right now:

1) 100% Tuition Exemption. It’s self explanatory. You’ll no longer have to worry about high tuition rates. School is a lot easier when it’s free.

2) The Montgomery GI Bill will give you $392 per month, every month you are a full time student. This stipend is TAX FREE. More stipends are available depending on your ASVAB score.

3) You’ll earn college credits at Basic Training (6 semester hours), and in some cases, Advanced Individual Training can also give you credits so taking time off from school will not put you behind.

4) Taking a break from college to attend Basic Training is not only common, but it can also be a refreshing experience for you to learn more about your limits and abilities.

5) If you are wanting to join now, but are registered for classes in the Spring, we can send you to Basic Training in the summer. No need to cancel your classes.

If you know anyone who needs to see this message, please feel free to tag them or share this with them. I enlisted during the winter break approximately 8 years ago and it was my only shot at finishing on time without debt!🇺🇸 #geauxguard

Took my beautiful wife out to get a burgers and shakes because tomorrow she finally graduates college. She’s worked her tail off for 4 years to get to this point all while putting up with my long hours and our two children. She’s goofy, sincere, and loves to be the keeper of our home. My kids have a bright future because of her. Giving her credit this evening because a good woman deserves to be recognized.

Ephesians 5:25
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Also, guess which military branch paid for 100% of her college 😎

Today my wife and my son helped me move into my new office in the building that I work in. As I unlocked and opened the door, the only thing that was in the office (other than the desk) was a King James Version Bible. I instantly thought of this scripture in Matthew:

Matthew 16:18
And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Jesus should always be the foundation of everything we do. Our careers, our marriage, our family, etc. I am guilty of making my career about me and not what God wants me to accomplish within my platform. I am thankful that the Lord loves me enough to send me a reminder every now and then to get me back on track.

383 years ago today the term “minuteman” became known as the National Guard was officially established. A force completely made up of volunteers, decided to wear a uniform that was unfamiliar to them. Hundreds of years later, that selflessness still resides in the hearts of thousands of Americans today. Our National Guard is actively involved in state missions all over the country, and as well as numerous missions overseas. Since establishment, the National Guard has been involved in every major world war and has served as the forefront to protecting our country from disasters. I thank God that we have men and women across this country that will put their life on hold to protect their own backyard🇺🇸 #geauxguard

⚠️A message to all Team Leaders and Squad Leaders⚠️

Here are a few things I have learned about leadership:

1) There is no secret formula
2) Books, Ted Talks, & Seminars can be helpful, but are not necessary
3) All you have to do is legitimately care about those you are leading

Many NCO’s in our profession fail to lead and develop Soldiers because they do not take a vested interest in the well being, success, and circumstance of said Soldiers. It all starts with caring.

If you simply do not care, then you will not lead. You will not call. You will not follow up. You will not teach. You will not empathize. It is not about us anymore. Many of us were given our rank and position because someone trusted us to make those under us more successful. Though we are to still progress in our career, we are to also train up our replacements.

“All Soldiers are entitled to outstanding leadership” We as NCO’s are required to provide that leadership. We have to own that responsibility and develop the next generation. Do not complain about a soft Army when you were the one who helped create it.

Let’s leave this military better than we found it🇺🇸 #geauxguard

Thank you to my Alma Mater Tioga High School for supporting our troops overseas #GeauxGuard

This holiday season, some very special THS business students have decided to give back to those who make the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. G-Co 2-238th GSAB, Task Force Dragon is a medivac unit made up of 140 soldiers, all Louisiana natives, that will be spending their holidays away from their families while deployed to Afghanistan. The students have been working to prepare a large care-package of Louisiana favorites and Christmas goodies to send to these soldiers. Their hopes are to bring some joy and Christmas spirit and show our appreciation for their efforts and sacrifice!
If you would like to contribute to the students’ efforts, you can bring any donations to Tioga High or to Mac’s Fresh Market in Tioga on the December 4 from 3:00-4:30 and December 5th & 6th from 3:00-6:00.
Items to be donated should be sealed, new, and non-perishable. It is our understanding that soldiers are most appreciative of items such as coffee, snacks, seasoning and most of all, chapstick! Any cash donations will be used to purchase more of these items.
Know that any gift you give is greatly appreciated.
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!!! #BetterTogether

There has been something on my mind lately and I want to share some truth with everyone today. Many recruiters/service members from other branches like to claim that the National Guard is “not the real military”. Not only was the National Guard the first military branch ever established, the National Guard is also the only branch with a dual mission (meaning they respond to disasters within the US, and they mobilize overseas). Here’s what I like to show people when they say we aren’t “the real military”.

(LEFT PICTURE) This is the swear in room at Shreveport MEPS in Louisiana. Every person who joins the military in this area swears-in in this room. The room is named after Craig Nelson, a Shreveport native who was a National Guardsman that lost his life in Iraq. Was he not a real Soldier?

(RIGHT PICTURE) There are also several plaques of military members who lost their lives while serving. 12 of the 48 people on this plaque that died were members of the Army National Guard. Would these people not be considered real Soldiers?

The main issue lies within the hearts of the people making the ignorant claim of who’s in the “real military” and who isn’t. Nothing we do as service members should ever be used to tear down another service member. Service is not about us. It is not about pride. It is not about who’s done more than the other. Service is about who we serve for.

If you have to downplay someone else’s military service to make yours look/sound better, you probably haven’t done anything special to begin with. Rant over.

God bless any and all service members of our nation! #geauxguard

Huge shout out to my newest recruit, David Pabon. David moved to Louisiana recently and he was interested in setting himself up for success by getting a job skill in the aviation realm. He will be trained on repairing Air Traffic Control equipment and he’ll receive full time pay & benefits during that training.

David was a great applicant due to his high level of respect for others, obedience during the process, and determination to not let anything get in his way. This is what I look for in a future Soldier!
