With two Baghdad deployments under his belt, there isn’t anything Clint Maurer can’t accomplish! He has been able to take the organizational skills he learned during his time in the military and apply them to his job as Operations Supervisor, giving him that extra edge to get the job done right.
Transitioning Out of the Military
Clint served in the United States Army as a Corporal specializing as an Indirect Fire Infantryman. As a corporal with that specialty, he was attached to an infantry company that traveled everywhere on foot. A typical day for Clint and the other infantrymen included a 12 hour patrol.
Clint endured two separate tours to areas just outside Baghdad. He explained,
“When we first arrived we were receiving IED strikes daily. When we left we received maybe one strike a month”.
This is a testament to the progress he and his unit made there.
Clint has a few helpful tips to share with fellow soldiers leaving the military:
- Remember: this is a different environment; military tone does not work here
- Use the skills you acquired in the military to find a civilian job
Working at Reddaway
After leaving the United States Army, Clint was able to live anywhere in the U.S. he wanted. He was drawn to Montana because of the wide open spaces and beautiful scenery. After doing an online job search, he found an open position at our Missoula terminal and was sold on moving to Montana.
Clint’s focus and attention to detail he picked up in the Army makes him an excellent Operations Supervisor. His talent for managing all of the details keeps our daily scheduling and dispatch team running smoothly.
Plans for the Future
Because of his German and Polish roots, Clint hopes to travel to Germany and backpack through the rest of Europe to better understand his culture. Believe it or not, polka music is a regular on his music list, along with metal, hard rock, and Christmas music all year round. A strange combination, but it works for him.
And some day, Clint plans to buy a house and settle down… for now he’s enjoying hiking, camping and playing hockey in his free time.
We want to thank Clint for his service to the United States of America and for being a member of Team Reddaway.
