    • The #NationalGuard would like to recognize and highlight PFC Cory Paytonas our #SoldierOfTheWeek. "Hi, my name is PFC Payton and I am an 11B: Infantryman. I enlisted into the (insert state name) National Guard when I was 17 years of age and just a junior in high school by using the Guards Split Training Option. I hope to gain leadership skills from the #Guard that will help me further develop into the man and #Soldier I want to be. Basic Training and AIT was difficult mentally more than physically; however, every bad day comes to an end. BCT and AIT also gave me the skills to defend my country and battle buddy’s. My grandpa who was passing away at the time inspired me to join the National Guard. He himself also served in the National Guard with my aunt. The National Guard means I can serve my country and community while continuing to be at home working a civilian job and being with family. One line from the Soldiers Creed that means the most to me is ‘I will always place the mission first,’ because I must place the mission first in my military and civilian life. One core army value that means the most to me is #loyalty because I must be loyal to my battles, my family and myself." Please take the time to congratulate this #CitizenSoldier on his Gold Phase Graduation Ceremony, and most importantly his return back to us in our wonderful state of (state name). If you’re looking to help others and think you have what it takes to join our family, message us today.
    • The (insert state name)#NationalGuard would like to recognize and highlight PV2 Uyen Bui as our #SoldierOfTheWeek. "Hi, my name is PV2 Bui and I am an 91B: Wheeled Vehicle Mechanic. I am an immigrant from Vietnam and have been in the U.S. for about 3 years now. Through my completion of basic training, I was able to earn my U.S citizenship through the (insert state name) National Guard. I’d like to serve full-time in the (insert state name) National Guard after completing my college degree. Basic Combat Training was very tough for me; however, I received a lot of motivation from my drill sergeants and battles. I was forced to change and challenge myself to do better. AIT gave me new knowledge about mechanics and helped to improve my background. My classmate in college serves for the Army, and I learned about the #Guardthrough him. Fortunately, I met a nice recruiter and she led me to join the Guard. I received so much care and help from my recruiter. The National Guard means that I have a #duty to serve the country and the people in my community. I’m honored to be a member of the Guard and strive my best to complete my tasks. One line from the Soldiers Creed that means the most to me is “I always maintain my arms, my equipment and myself,’ because those things are important in order to be good enough to protect my country and my community. One core army value that means the most to me is personal courage because this value motivates me to get better and be the best Soldier that I can be."
