Army Reserve Brig. Gen. Marion Garcia is the Deputy Commander, Joint Task Force GITMO
Q - How does it feel to be the first Hispanic female general officer in the Army Reserve?A - Until right now when you asked the question, I was not aware that I was the first. The great thing about the U.S. Army is that we are all Soldiers first. I have had the good fortune to serve with great Americans of all races and demographics and I can tell you from the heart that I do not feel that I am any different from any of them. We are all here because we believe that there is something greater than ourselves. We are all here because we are looking for a challenge, to test our personal limits.
Q - Explain how your heritage impacted your career?A - I grew up in a military family, my father was a Marine. So we lived all over the place including overseas and moved quite a bit. I think that we are all a product of our environment and mine was the military extended family.
