Robert J. Glogowski Bio:
No not married.
Location: Living in the Midwest just south of Chicago, Illinois, when I am not DRIVING OTR.
In early 2013 I decided to become an Over The Road Proffessional CDL Truck Driver.
Begining mid-2008, failed economy due to many years of our government’s poor congressional decisions, government leadership and their own interest to do nothing but continue to fund unnecessary wars, ignore unemployment, raise healthcare costs, make healthcare not only unaffordable but also unattainable. Poor congressional decisions and government leadership have promised and guarantied many American’s over 50 nothing but a continuous loss of employment opportunity, less job possibilities and an annihilation of many years of education and experience to be of absolutely no value.
Team Rubicon Volenteer:
Providing Humanitarian Disaster Relief to residents such as those affected by Storm Sandy in the Rockaways, Queeens, NY.
Team Rubicon – "Team" emphasizes the organization's military ethos of small, cohesive units. “Rubicon" has survived in reference to any group committing itself to a risky course of action. Bridge the Gap Engages Veterans, many returning home after war; find a renewed sense of purpose for their skills and experiences operating as a disaster relief organization and a veteran-focused enterprise, while redefining the meaning of veteran reintegration into society.
Associating a natural disaster to similar problems that confronted troops in Iraq and Afghanistan such as unstable populations, limited resources, horrific sights, sounds and smells along with utilizing the skills cultivated on those same battlefields – emergency medicine, risk assessment and mitigation, teamwork and decisive leadership – are invaluable in disaster zones.
Team Rubicon - Our Mission - Team Rubicon unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with medical professionals to rapidly deploy emergency response teams into crisis situations, since its creation on January 17, 2010, reaching victims outside the scope of where traditional aid organizations venture; victims on the fringe.
Team Rubicon - Our Slogan - The "Gap" that exists between large natural disasters and conventional aid response. Team Rubicon serves to "Bridge" this gap; providing field triage and relief operations until large aid organizations and nations can provide definitive care. The "Gap" is primarily time; the crucial window following a disaster when victims have traditionally been without outside aid. When the "Gap" closes - once conventional aid organizations arrive - Team Rubicon moves on.
Industries I have worked for: I have worked in many industrial manufacturing industries, served my country in the USAF, worked in the aircraft maintenance industry, medical facilities management and professional office building industries management, apartment, home and property maintenance and management.
Job Positions: Job positions and tittles I have held: Service Station Attendant, Dishwasher, Bus boy, Stock boy, Custodian, Machine Operator, Worker, Class “C” Maintenance Man, Class “B” Maintenance Man, Wall Builder, Supervisor, Carpenter, Tactical Aircraft Maintenance Supervisor Technician, Aircraft Maintenance Technician, Chainsaw Service Mechanic, Fleet Service Mechanic, Building Maintenance Director & Director of Environmental Services, Facilities and Buildings Maintenance Manager & Engineer, Buildings Maintenance Manager/Engineer, Electrician’s Helper, Electrical Panel & Machine Wiring Technician, Press Mechanic and Maintenance Technician and a few other positions.
My military - Airman Performance Reports: During 8 years of military service and eight years of performance report ratings of 9.0 on a scale of 0 being the lowest rating and 9 being an impossible very meticulous rating for anyone to achieve in the military and being instrumental in Airman Performance Reports (APR’s). The rating is based on a scale of 0 to 9. A rating of “9” is the highest score possible in each section of the performance evaluation process. Each report is divided into categories related to “on the job training (OJT)”, performance, working knowledge, appearance, ability to work with others, ability to supervise others etc. A rating of 9 in all categories and a total of 9 on the overall reviews on any APR was said to be “impossible for anyone” it just does not happen. During more than eight years of military service in the United States Air Force I received eight Airman Performance Reports. Every APR I received my rating was nothing less than 9.0.
Accomplishments: During the 14 years of service in the military aircraft industry I was instrumental in being part of aircraft maintenance and supervising team that completed years of successful missions without any maintenance related aircraft incidents.
Special Promotions: In the USAF there were four promotion positions open for senior airman to staff sergeant. I was one of 4 individuals that were given a step promotion from senior airman (SrA) E-3 to a noncommissioned officer rank of Staff Sergeant (SSgt) E-5. This was an opportunity to go from airman (worker) to one grade above sergeant (manager). This position would create a status of being called a “buck sergeant” because a person would skip an entire rank stage process. I made this promotion within a first term 4 year period based on my job performance, skill level, abilities and approval and passing a USAF promotion review board.
