Hello and welcome to Part-Time-Commander.com, a resource center for part-time Army Officers, NCOs and Soldiers serving in the Army National Guard, Army Reserve, & Defense Force. My name is Charles Holmes. My friends call me Chuck. I hope you will do the same thing.
I am a former Army Major who served on Active Duty, the Army Reserve, and in the Army National Guard. You can learn more about me on my about me page.
I created this website to provide helpful resources, information, and secret tips for officers, NCOs, and Soldiers serving in the Army, part-time. After spending six years in the Maryland Army National Guard, I quickly discovered that there are limited resources for part-time Soldiers. Instead, everything is geared toward our Active Duty counterparts.
In November 2009, I launched this website to help fill this void. Since then, I’ve converted the website into a much larger blog, created a large YouTube channel, and published many books on the subject. I’ve even created an online military store with lots of helpful resources for part-time Soldiers. Make sure you check it out.
Initially, the website was designed for Company Commanders. However, I’ve expanded the website to help everyone serving part-time in the Army Reserve, Army National Guard, & Defense Force. This includes officers, Warrant Officers, NCOs, Soldiers, contractors, spouses, and veterans.
Not only are we a website, but we are also a community. I encourage you to leave comments to my posts, to share your opinion and knowledge, and to help keep the rest of our community updated about what’s going on in the Army National Guard, Army Reserve, and Defense Force.
Here are some things you will learn on my website:
- Career Tips
- Deployment Tips
- Developing Your Subordinates
- Getting Promoted
- Military Schools
- Military History
- Veteran’s Information
- And Much More!
I would like to thank you for visiting my website today. Take your time, grab a cup of coffee, and a pen and paper. Take notes. If you have questions, send me an email. I’m here to help you succeed. What you are about to learn will definitely help you become a better, more effective part-time Army leader.
Once again, thanks for visiting my Part-Time-Commander.com website. And thanks for your service to our great country. Hooah!
