Airborne Trooper – Episode 3

Listen Here

Patrick Horst Served in the Army in the Mid 1990’s.  This was a time of relatively low combat activity.  The troopers and soldiers during this time period had a very critical mission and that was to keep prepared and ready for the next major conflict.  The training difficult, very realistic and most trooper and soldiers were deployed for a large part of any year they served. 

Pat is a Senior Manager at Verizon, he holds an MBA from NC State and resides with his family in Raleigh North Carolina. 

His stories include his teenage years, growing up with a father who was an alcoholic, joining the Army and his many adventures and stories. 

Pat lived in the barracks during a time of transition from crowed open dorms to private rooms. He talks about the BOSS Program. The http://philbergman.com/wp-content/plugins/complete-gallery-manager/frames/upload-images.php BOSS program improves the morale and welfare of single  http://partidounionliberal.com/old/wp-admin/ Soldiers, increase retention and sustain combat readiness.

During closing remarks Pat lays it out (in my opinion) on what the Army and the rest of the military teaches a soldier.  

Enjoy this episode.
