Have been assisting AKO since April 2009 by answering emails addressed to AKO.CAC and provide all of the content for the AKO CAC Resource Center.
Have been a computer geek since receiving first computer [Commodore VIC 20] in January 1981.
CAC installation assistance has been ongoing since in November 2007 because the need for this information should be available to everyone. Personal satisfaction is helping people when most "help desks" can't or refuse to. The best payment you can give is to website with your colleagues, and post some small tear off tab signs at your unit, or purchase some memorabilia. Donations are obviously accepted too. This website does not have banner and flashing webpage ads, therefore, it is personal funds (along with the donations) that are used to pay for webhosting, domain name registration(s), and SSL certificate to keep this site as clean and quick loading as possible.
While deployed in 2003 to Kuwait & Iraq for Operation Iraqi Freedom, worked as the SIPR webmaster for the 3d COSCOM / V Corps Rear G6. When V Corps moved to Baghdad, I assumed the duties of the System Administrator and became the "Go to guy" for the 3d COSCOM. I still maintained the SIPR website, but also took care of the maintenance and administrative tasks for three separate networks, including 13 servers in our facility, helped facilitate the install of CENTRIXS on Balad, and continued to assist everyone with their computer problems.
Soon after returning from Iraq in early 2004, I moved to Minnesota (Minneapolis / Saint Paul) and sought out being an IMR for the 88th RRC. I completed Level 1 IASO, IASO Technical Level 1, and the SA / NMSC at Fort McCoy, Wisconsin to become a tier level II technician.
I have an Associate of Applied Science degree in Network Development from Brown College in Minnesota, carry three CompTIA certifications, and Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) for Windows 7 (see below).
The Army Reserve started using CAC logon in May 2006. I [once again] became the "Go to guy" for my Army Reserve Center and Minnesota. I thought Why stop there? I could use my website and knowledge of CAC and share it with you.
In 2010, the Army allowed me to leave the Ordnance Corps and join the Signal Corps after a 7.5 month long WOBC at Fort Gordon, GA, I finally became an official Army Computer Geek.
I retired from the Army on 1 March 2015, and now help the Army via the Army Enterprise Service Desk-Worldwide (AESD-W)
This website allows me to help people in all branches of the Military worldwide!!
Thanks for visiting my website.
