Rodney Gullatte Jr
Military Veteran


What would be an encouragement for those who may consider joining the military?

One: The military will get what they want out of you; understand that going in. So make sure you have a plan to get what you want out of it, too. open up investment account, start putting this money away. Because if you are coming out of high school and start that investment process by the time you’re 40, you’ll be set. You don’t have to work anymore if you don’t want to.

Two: When it comes to going in, officers versus enlisted, Officers make much more money than enlisted people do, and that follows you depending on how long you stay.

Three: There are different types of people who go into the military. For me, it was supposed to be a stepping stone to weather a bad economic environment. Get what I want and then I’ll get out and go pursue my career.

When you got out of the Military, how was your experience being a military spouse?

It’s a family in the military because we all were all making that sacrifice together. The military spouses that are married to the active-duty military persons sometimes get forgotten. The whole system is set up for the military spouse to be a female. I was a male military spouse. I was the one at home with the kids braiding hair and cooking, taking the kids back and forth to school, while my wife was in another country. I had to hold it down. There wasn’t stuff for the military spouse men to do, so I created my own environment. I want to encourage military spouses, both men and women. If you’re going to be that military spouse at home with the kids, that doesn’t have to be the end-all-be-all for you.

I bleed red, white, and blue, but I understand that we are not treated equally as black men. So my focus was to do a good job in the military to come out and have a good job and a good life for my family.

As for the biggest lesson I learned while serving, I would say that there are no excuses. You do the job and are recognized for success; you mess up and take accountability, relearn, and keep going because the world is not going to throw you a pity party.
