Active US Army Reservist To Spend A Month in Germany For Annual Training

Our active Army Reserves member Timothy Neal joined the US Army in 2000 and has been a member of the Reserves since 2005 and served in multiple logistics duties. As a maintenance supply sergeant for the Army Reserve Construction Engineer Battalion, Tim plays a vital role in keeping the heavy equipment running.

Here at Winesecrets Tim has taken well to wine handling and cellar work in our shipping and receiving department. He continues to soak it all up like a sponge and solidify himself as a valuable member of our team!

For the month of July Tim will be deployed to Germany for Army Reserve Annual Training. As a requirement for reserve soldiers this annual training consists of spending a month at a US Army training base in the Bavarian wilderness...not really beer and schnitzel dinners as you may have pictured!

Winesecrets is proud of our Veteran Hiring Program. Timothy is the only team member still actively serving and we intentionally are flexible to accommodate this necessary time off. We support our Reservists and National Guardsmen remaining engaged in their service duties while pursuing their new career with us in the wine industry.
