Bob is a versatile writer with decades of professional communications and marketing experience. He has collaborated with a diverse range of people from around the world. He understands military and government service extremely well, serving two tours of duty in the Army Reserves, totaling 14 years in the military. He spent six of those years as a Drill Sergeant and attained the rank of Sergeant First Class. His service also included a yearlong deployment in Nasiriyah, Iraq, serving as the Non-Commissioned Officer in Charge of a battalion-level convoy operations center.
