While in the U.S. Army, my MOS was 31U, Signal Support Systems Specialist and after two deployments I am happy to call Stevens home. There are not many companies out there that provide the level of support that Stevens does. It is very important for me to have stability where I can apply the skills and work ethic I attained in the service.
