#VeteranOfTheDay Army Veteran Andy Mabry


Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is Andy Mabry. Andy served in the Ohio Army National Guard as a forward observer from 2002-2009.

Andy served as a National Guardsman while he studying as a full-time undergraduate student at Ohio State University. During his National Guard service, he performed multiple missions outside of battle assembly drills. He deployed to Kuwait as part of a security detail and was mobilized to active duty for missions in England as a supplementary military policeman and in Pearl River County for disaster relief support after Hurricane Katrina.

After he left the service, Andy attended business school and earned an MBA from Texas Christian University in 2015. Today, he is part of the post-MBA supply chain leadership development program at Raytheon.

Thank you for your service, Andy!
