"Slow is Smooth, Smooth is FAST! " is his biggest lesson from his Army service.
Eric shared one his most memorable moments in the military with us...
For me, my most memorable moment was when I was promoted to SGT. I knew from childhood I wanted to be a Soldier. Not just any Soldier but I wanted to be an Infantryman. My grandfather was an Infantryman in WWII in the 75th Infantry regiment. He had his legs blown off from a land mine while pushing his commander out of the way. His sacrifice and ability to never let that change him was my passion for wanting to join the military. He achieved the rank of SGT while he was in, so I always wanted to achieve that same rank. When I did It was a surreal moment in my life that I will never forget.
If you ever get the opportunity to interact with Eric, you'll experience a true professional and knowledgeable member of the G-Sight team.
