Staff Sergeant David Smith was assigned to the company’s combat-support battalion, and when he retired in 2016, he wanted to spend more time with his family.
So when he was promoted to platoon commander, Smith started thinking about how to get the job done.
“I’m a bit of a ‘what if’ guy,” Smith said.
The plan was simple.
Smith would be assigned to a platoon where he’d be able to support other platoon members and, hopefully, the entire battalion.
As Smith saw it, platoon commanders should be expected to do more than lead their teams.
But it wasn’t easy.
A few months after Smith retired, he was sent to Afghanistan to be an infantryman.
He and his fellow platoon commanders went to great lengths to keep their platoon alive and the company intact.
They worked as much as they could, but they also knew that they were not doing enough.
While they were in Afghanistan, the company had an unexpected problem.
There were no men to lead them.
To make matters worse, there was little to no money to pay for the men.
That made things even more difficult.
Some of the men had just left their families and were living with their families.
Others had recently been deployed and were waiting for their paychecks to come in.
For Smith, it was another problem.
It wasn’t just the lack of men, it wasn the lack that had made it difficult for the platoon to survive.
And it wasn, Smith said, a difficult one to solve.
Because of that, he asked his platoon commander if they could try to find a man to lead the platoon.
This was a rare opportunity for Smith.
It wasn’t a problem that would have been a problem had Smith not left his family behind and the military.
Instead, Smith was tasked with helping to support his platoon as he moved to an all-male battalion.
In the end, Smith decided to join the battalion to be able continue his father’s dream of serving his country.
When Smith and his platoon arrived in Iraq in June 2017, the platoon was the first of many to be deployed there.
With so many men in the area, the soldiers found it difficult to find work and make it through the dangerous months of combat.
When the men arrived at the battalion’s base, they found the rest of the battalion lacking.
In an effort to help their men get a better job, Smith’s platoon commander offered him a position in the battalion as a combat engineer.
Although Smith was initially skeptical, he loved his job.
Eventually, he and his colleagues made a decision to join a platoon with a larger contingent of men.
Smith said that, after being deployed to Afghanistan, he realized that he was in a position where he could help his platoon.
Smith said he was also in a good position to help the men that he helped.
After serving in the military for 18 years, Smith had learned a lot about what it takes to make it in the business world.
He was confident in his ability to get his men to do the right things.
However, there were some things Smith didn’t know how to do.
Once he was assigned as an engineer, he didn’t have much of a job to show for it.
Still, Smith thought he could get his team to do something.
One day in May, he came up with an idea.
Just like a football player who gets a job at the best college, Smith wanted to be the best man in his platoon, so he took his platoon to a game.
At first, the men weren’t sure what to think.
Then, when the players were asked to perform some sort of a drill, they did what they were told.
From there, Smith realized that the drill was just a way to get a job and a chance to help his fellow men.
Smith said his team was ready to go.
Before long, Smith and the platoon were the ones who were called to work in the field.
Their job, though, was not to perform any tasks but to keep the platoon safe.
Each week, they were called out to do one of several tasks in the platoon: supporting, taking down trees, making sure that water was flowing properly, and so on.
During the day, the team was supposed to have a basic briefing with the company commander.
On weekends, Smith would get some time off and would help the platoon by getting food and supplies to the men who were in the unit.
Sometimes, he would even go on a walk.
The men were proud of Smith, who was known for being a “team player.”
In the summer of 2017, Smith finally decided to get out of the military and return to the United States.
