Civilian Job:

SPC Aveon Bland: Hi, I'm Specialist Aveon Bland. I'm a 15 Papa, which is an aviation operations specialist. I've been in the Army Reserve for five years.

Well, we typically handle the flight plans and anything that has to do with the aircraft and the pilots, who may do things such as flight records. And we may do things such as making sure that everyone at the base operations center gets the information needed, so the aircraft can take off.

All of these things I learned in the Army Reserve that cross over and make me a more formidable opponent to those who may be applying for the same job.

I'm very proud to serve-it feels great. I'm honored.
