Robert (Bob) Quayle
I have a unique background in that I joined the Army right out of Berea High School in 1983 and served 6 years on active duty in Bamberg, Germany and Ft. Benning, GA as an Intelligence Analyst and then 3 years in the Ohio National Guard from 1989 - 1992. While in the National Guard, I began my transition into a career in banking and finance that lasted for the next 20 years. During that career, I held positions such as: Branch Manager, Business Banking Officer, Loan Officer and Financial Adviser.
Then the economy collapsed in 2008 and I was forced into early retirement. Not wanting to retire, I reenlisted in the Army intending to complete 20 or more years of service but I only served from 2008 - 2013 at Ft. Bliss, TX because I was retired due to injuries that I sustained while on duty. My rank upon retirement was Staff Sergeant (E-6).
While on active duty, I earned a degree in Intelligence Operations and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a 4.0 GPA. So far, I am maintaining a 4.0 here at Baldwin Wallace as well and I am pursuing a degree in National Security with a minor in Business Management as a compliment to my Intelligence degree and experience. Once I graduate, I intend to seek employment with the FBI, CIA, Homeland Security, or DIA.
A quote that I LIVE by is: "Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure...than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt
