329th RSG Hispanic Heritage Month Observance: Introducing Master Sgt. Sammy Jones

Master Sgt. Sammy Jones, Military Police, assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 329th Regional Support Group, is a Fajardo, Puerto Rico native, born and raised by his loving parents. Jones has dedicated 25 years of service to the Army National Guard thus far- two years in the Puerto Rico Army National Guard and approximately 23 years in the Virginia Army National Guard.

It was only a matter of time before Jones decided to join the military.

"My father served a career in the Navy," Jones said. "With that, I always knew I would serve amongst one branch or the other."

The intent to join was always at the forefront of Jones's mind but that realization became a reality his senior year of high school when they were visited by an Army Recruiter who presented all the right information that grasped his attention.

The Army National Guard had the best of both worlds. It presented military opportunities that were applicable to the military as well as a skillset that could be used in the civilian world; it was perfect for what Jones had in mind, getting him one step closer to his goal.

"I always wanted to be a police officer since I was younger," Jones explained. "I decided to follow the military police path which then led to me building my experience to join the civilian sector as a police officer and start a career towards my civilian profession."

329th RSG Hispanic Heritage Month Observance: Introducing Staff Sgt. Angel Sanchez

Staff Sgt. Angel Sanchez, Ammunition Sergeant, assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 329th Regional Support Group, is a Norfolk, Virginia native, raised by his parents from Puerto Rico, who joined the Army as a way forward - a chance to become a better person and an opportunity to push towards setting and achieving his goals.

"I dropped out of high school and one day found myself on Craigslist searching for a job when I came across an ad, an ad with personal, professional and financial opportunities, an ad to get my General Education Development (GED) through the National Guard GED Program," Sanchez said. "I decided to call the recruiter and that is when I realized I would take the opportunity to serve."

Sanchez would elaborate further with 'when' the need/desire to serve became more solidified.

"It was not until after joining but I realized I had a strong sense of pride, the support of my family and getting to know the heritage of my family. I had a goal to start and gain as much knowledge as I could, and finish what I set out to do, as I was known to start things and then drop them," Sanchez explained.

329th RSG Hispanic Heritage Month Observance: Introducing Spc. Cindy Brant

Spc. Cindy Brant, a Motor Transport Operator, Virginia Beach-based 1173d Composite Truck Company, 329th Regional Support Group, Virginia National Guard, born and raised in Los Angeles, California. So where and how did it all start? Brant accompanied her little sister to a recruiting event and her interest to serve was ignited. After some thought Brant stated, "I mentioned it to my parents and my father said that it wasn't for a woman... that I wasn't built for something like that." This particular comment fully reinforced Brant's decision and desire to serve more than she had realized.

Brant said, "That made me realize I wanted to prove him wrong and prove to other Hispanic American women that we can take on the military lifestyle as well as build a home."

Heritage provides historical perspective and provides a chance for individuals to understand traditions that may be specific to one's ancestors. "Not only can I be a mother and wife as we are taught to be but also a Soldier. It has taught me to value family more than I had before and that things don't come easy," Brant explained.

329th RSG Hispanic Heritage Month Observance: Introducing Staff Sgt. Vanessa Rivera-

Staff Sgt. Vanessa Rivera, a Unit Supply Sergeant, assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 329th Regional Support Group, is a Puerto Rico native, who joined the Army because she felt it would give her the skills and experience to tackle any challenges that life threw at her and allow her to become a better person, Soldier, and professional.

There are multiple reasons for why individuals come to the conclusion that they want or have the desire to serve in the Armed Forces. These reasons can be based on specific people, outcomes, experiences and interactions - positive and negative.

"I feel that my experience gained throughout my career as a military police and a unit supply sergeant are invaluable assets to my unit," Rivera said. "Although challenging at times, I enjoy all the roles I fill as they make an all-together well-rounded Soldier."

Rivera would go on to elaborate a little further with, "The Soldiers under my care also play a big part in my desire to keep serving as I get to instill my knowledge and experiences into them and watch them grow and develop in their military careers and as young adults."

Be proud of your past. Embrace the future.

“It is important for all of us to appreciate where we come from and how that history has really shaped us in ways that we might not understand.” - Sonia Sotomayor

15 September through 15 October is National Hispanic Heritage Month, it is a time to give honor to the Hispanic American culture and all their contributions, specifically those serving among our Armed Forces.

This month in particular, but always, we celebrate Hispanic Heritage to include family, honor, hard-work, and dedication to service. We give great thanks to the Hispanic Americans of the 329th Regional Support Group, down trace units, and those across the Nation Armed Forces who have made the sacrifice to be part of this great organization.

It is important to honor and celebrate Hispanic Heritage to show our appreciation and bring awareness to all backgrounds within our ranks. Be on the lookout for Introductions of 329th RSG Hispanic American Soldiers as we take part in National Hispanic Heritage Month observances. #SustainVictory

“There is nothing more majestic than the determined courage of individuals willing to suffer and sacrifice for their freedom and dignity.” -Martin Luther King Jr.

Twenty years ago, the 9/11 terrorist attacks killed 2,977 people and injured thousands at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and in Somerst County, Pennsylvania.
The 329th RSG gathers together on this day, September 11, 2021, at 0848 for reflection and a moment of silence to pay tribute to the victims and honor the survivors of the September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993 terrorist attacks and observes the anniversary of the end of the 9/11 rescue and recovery efforts. #SustainVictory

After the observance, while in formation, there was an opportunity to celebrate a couple of Soldiers moving up through the ranks. Congratulations to newly promoted Sgt. Grant Brizendine on his promotion from Specialist to Sergeant; and Congratulations to newly promoted Spc. Mikeal Clark on his promotion from Private First Class to Specialist.
