My name is Jinger Jarrett. I’m a full-time freelance writer, author, and internet marketer. I am also a veteran.
I served in the US Army from 1982 – 1986. My primary MOS was 32F – Fixed Ciphony Repair. My secondary MOS was 71L – Administrative Specialist. I also served in the Michigan Army National Guard where I earned my sergeant stripes and picked up a third MOS: 46Q, print military journalism. I hold the 20 level for both 71L and 46Q.
I come from a military family. Our military tradition dates back to the American Revolution when Robert Jarrett IV and his brother Devereaux served during the American Revolution. Robert was a captain of the horse in Burke County, NC. (My family came to America in 1665.) They eventually settled in Georgia, and that’s where I am from. (I live in North Carolina now because this is where my children and grandchildren are.) Although my family has served since the American Revolution, I am the first woman to serve, something I am extremely proud of.
I got involved in veterans’ issues several years ago after listening to the problems so many veterans were having with the VA as well as personally. Additionally, I had the pleasure of meeting online veterans from other countries as well, including Great Britain, Australia, South Africa, and Poland. What I learned from these veterans and many others is that even though we’re from different countries, we still have the same problems as veterans.
My mission has always been to unite us so that we can help one another solve the problems of our countries. It’s about standing up and doing the right thing. I believe that “many are called. Few are chosen.” Veterans and the military are the guardians, the sentinels, the protectors of our freedoms.
In order to make sure we continue to have those freedoms, we must stand up and stand together to protect those freedoms. We simply do not have the luxury of infighting when our countries need us so much.
For those of us in America, we took an oath to protect our country against all enemies both foreign and domestic. Our oath is to the Constitution, not the military, not our president, and not to any specific institution.
We have been given the task of protecting those freedoms. That means we uphold our oath, and we protect the rights of everyone, not just those we like. Sadly, many of our veterans are deprived of their rights, and that’s even happened to me. We must be diligent if we are to avoid surrendering all our rights for the sake of being left alone.
In 2016 I got involved in the prepper movement. We face so many problems that can include everything from hurricanes to the collapse of the economy. It is important to prepare for any emergency and protect our families. That also includes helping each other to get ready so that we succeed in our mission to protect the rights of others.
