New Member Introduction-Garrett Field
Good day, 
My name is Garrett Field and I am an on-again off-again ASQ member.  However, this time is for the long haul.  I retired from the military in 2014 and immediately began my manufacturing career.  I was introduced to Lean Six Sigma during my Army days.  I am a green belt, which means I know enough to really mess things up.  I also had the opportunity, through a previous employer, to be trained in Lean through the University of Kentucky.  I now find myself as the Quality and Compliance Manager at current employer.  I believe the bedrock of quality is continuous improvement and look forward to continuing my journey with the support of ASQ and this community.

you're the best, thank you!
Curious, if we wanted to create a community for Military/Veterans how I would go about do that?  I think it will be a good way to get like minded people together.
It's a pleasure to meet you Garrett! I just finished up 20 years as AF EOD in Sept. I'm dipping my toes into civilian life and going with the flow :)

If I can be of assistance in anyway, please let me know.

Best wishes,
Hello Garrett and all. I think a military (and ex-military) forum is a great idea. I'm ex-Army and have been working for a DoD contractor for almost 20 years now. It would be great to to have a pool of folks to bounce ideas off of so count me in if/when we get a community established.

James Shore‍ - maybe we could create a space here - maybe a peer group??? or a discussion board on it's own? I'm happy to facilitate :D
