Build a strong team around you that supports each other and always looks at the greater good more than themselves or yourself. Lead from the front and always build your team up. One day when you struggle, they will be there to help you to your feet.

First Sergeant Ryan Cavey

Exciting news, our very own Ryan Cavey has been promoted to First Sergeant in the U.S. Army! First Sergeant Cavey spent 4 years in the Marine Corps Infantry and 11 years with the Army National Guard, totaling 15 years of service. In order to be successful, he mentioned “Never give up! Always give your best effort! We are not perfect and it is exhausting trying to achieve something unachievable. However, “perfect" effort is achievable and necessary to be successful.”

First Sergeants are people who lead from the front and become innovative and resilient in order to complete the mission. Through his willingness to take chances and ability to put the needs of other soldiers before himself, Cavey was the man for the job. When asked for a piece of advice, he replied “Build a strong team around you that supports each other and always looks at the greater good more than themselves or yourself. Lead from the front and always build your team up. One day when you struggle, they will be there to help you to your feet.” Congratulations on your promotion, Ryan. The Q family is proud of you and your accomplishment.
