Name Given at Birth: Jared Jerod Gober (To understand the pronunciation of my middle name, please refer to my post: Who is Jared J. Gober (Part 1). It’s not the same as my first name.
Born: March 8, 1980 in Tampa, Florida. Raised in The Great State of Alabama, city of Enterprise to be exact!
Marital Status: Divorced Children: 2 Girls (Ages: 9 & 10) their names are: No of and Your Damn Business
Served 14+ years in the Army as a 74D (54B, before the Army started changing things around), Chemical Operations Specialist (it’s not as spectacular as it sounds)
Had a scare while deployed in support of Iraqi Freedom III with a “few” Improvised Explosive Devices (IED), but them suckers finally got me in Afghanistan in 2010, while supporting Operation Enduring Freedom X. I have a Total of 6 Deployments, 5 Combat Deployments. (I usually don’t count the 1st one, because I wasn’t in actual combat, but sat my ass on an Air Force Camp, which was the best deployment out of the 6, I was deployed with the 3 B’s if you don’t know what they are, don’t worry about it.) I retired from active duty in 2012 and have been a house Dad since retirement.
Political Affiliation: Whoever is the Best Candidate. (Officially a Democrat, but if the Republican is the best Candidate, that individual gets my vote.) I’m tired of voting for an individual that has an agenda and I am only voting for the best qualified individual. No more “discriminating because of a political affiliation.
College Football Fanatic! Favorite Collegiate Team: Alabama Crimson Tide! (No matter what! Even in the days after our ’92 championship and we had some shaky years. I have been a fan since I can remember! My uncle always say, where did I go wrong with you, he is an Auburn Fan. I chose the correct team. Everybody can’t like the same team, I thought growing up, that’s how I chose my damn Tide!
I’m a pretty approachable individual. If you have any questions and would like to ask, don’t be afraid. I have nothing to hide. If I feel that you are asking a question that is getting a little to personal, I will simply respond with: that, sir or ma’am, is none of your business.
