Local soldier establishes career through military service

Local soldier establishes career through military service

February 14th, 2011 by Jeremy P. Amick in News

Staff Sgt. Matthew Woods served two tours of duty in Iraq and continues to enjoy his service with the U.S. Army.

Multiple deployments to a combat environment would, for many, serve as a catalyst to seek out an alternative employment arrangement. But for local Army recruiter Matthew Woods, it is simply an extension of the enthusiasm he possesses for his chosen career path.

Recently married to a young woman from St. James, Staff Sgt. Woods now enjoys the Mid-Missouri area and has aspirations of attending officer candidate school (OCS) to receive his commission as a military officer.
