When Carinda Horton joined the Army National Guard nearly 25 years ago, becoming a heavy equipment machine wasn’t exactly what she had in mind.
But she says she followed orders and completed the tasks assigned to her during her 12 years of service.
Over the course of those 12 years, she was on two separate deployments for Operation Desert Storm and Operation Desert Shield.
Now, after a 12-year hiatus from the military, the 42-year-old Duluth mom has re-enlisted and will be working the job she says she’s always dreamed of and it doesn’t involve heavy equipment.
