Voiceover of SGT Catanach telling how he served in the Marines for four years (during peacetime) then settled into civilian life with a good job. Then the war in Iraq happened and he wanted to re-enlist…and help his country. CUT TO: INTERVIEW: SGT Catanach explains that while he wanted to re-enlist, his wife just had their first child so he wanted to be close. He tells how his Marine reenlistment options didn’t help him address both desires…but the Army did. CUT TO: Voiceover of SGT Catanach talks about his desire to share responsibility with the troops and telling how Reserves allowed him to accomplish his goal and serve in Iraq. We see shots of his Army Commendation Medal, an Army Achievement Medal and a “challenge coin” from his Brigade Sergeant Major.

CUT TO: Close up of his truck. VO continues with SGT Catanach explaining the financial benefits of the Reserve. How his extra Drill Pay allowed him to pay for things like his truck. CUT TO: Voiceover continues as we see SGT Catanach walking around California State University Fullerton.

CUT TO: INTERVIEW: SGT Catanach gives final thoughts why the Army Reserve has helped him be a stronger person (e.g. leader, professional and father). “I plan to stay with the Reserve as long as they’ll keep me.” CUT TO Voiceover continues as we see panorama of an Orange County beach and SGT Catanach and family walking together.
