Mike Carroll: Vocational Speaker

 
Mike Carroll, one of the newest members of RCHB, told Club members a little bit about himself and wife, Leslie as part of our vocational service series.  Mike called himself a "common soldier." He spent 20 years in the tactical Army including time as a combat arms officer.
 
Starting out as a private, Mike went to officers candidate school.  He retired as a colonel.  He's been to the War College in Washington, DC, been to jungle school, arctic warfare school and been to more deserts than he like to count. 
 
Mike holds an MBA, and now operates a farm with Leslie.  "My wife shot the last boar" on the property," he said. Leslie is also retired military, where she was a warrant officer.  They raise and sell lamb on their Puna area far.
 
Since joining RCHB, Mike was quickly drafted to help with Oktoberfest and create a manual to streamline operations in coming years.  He also accepted our sergeant at arms position.
