Airborne Trooper – Episode 3
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://alteredstate.ca/scripts/jquery.museoverlay.js?493285861 BOSS program improves the morale and welfare of single http://sculpsureinwestpalmbeach.com/H-2004-JUL00-IDSI-111-1 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.
