Spc. Brandon Bronzinski is a utilities equipment repair specialist (91C) assigned to the 416th Theater Engineer Command (TEC).

He joined the Army Reserve in 2019. Since being assigned to the 416th TEC, Bronzinski is looking forward to the opportunity for career progression and additional education.

He likes the fact that education and training are a high priority in the Army Reserve.

“Everything is about teaching and training and learning and growing and what skills you can gain and offer,” he said. “And then, as you get later in your career, you help build the next generation of Soldiers coming behind you.”

“He’s always responsive and here when needed. He’s never missed any days, the best Soldier I have.” said Sgt. Keith Johns, 416th TEC HHC, Motor Sergeant.

Bronzinski is currently enrolled as a student at Columbia College in Chicago majoring in audio arts with a focus on music production and minor in music business.

He is also a musician and a self-taught guitarist who has been playing for nearly 16 years and writes his own music. He’s in a band called Escape the Paradigm with his brother who plays drums; he would like to be a recording artist in the future.

As for now Bronzinski continues to serve with the goal of completing Structured Self-Development 1 and the Basic Leader Course to promote to the rank of sergeant.
