"I enlisted in the Army National Guard as a junior in college in the state of Washington. One of the reasons I answered the call was to do something unique with my life. I am reaching my third year in service and am currently serving as a specialist (E4) in the Hawaii Army National Guard 227th Engineering Battalion as a horizontal construction equipment operator. Graduating college, I wanted to find a company that was military friendly and understood the commitment active service members make. Kiewit fit that criteria and has been very supportive of my military commitments since I joined the organization in 2015.
When someone asks me what have I done to make a difference in this world, I can proudly say, I became a soldier."
