My name is Monica Maldonado, I am a SGT (E-5) in the New Mexico National Guard. I’ve been in for four consecutive years. I have been deployed and have more than 2 years active duty time. The opportunity for growth in New Mexico is little to nonexistent. I am currently a 31B. But my desire and goal is to become a 68E. There are not currently any slots in NM for my desired MOS. I want to expand my location preferences by doing so I’m hoping it increases my chances of obtaining the job I desire.
