 Reports Detail Ongoing 17-plus Year Career in U.S. Army Reserve
Most recent 2012-2013 OER included in release


LITTLE ROCK – Second District Congressman, U.S. Army Reservist and candidate for Lieutenant Governor Tim Griffin today released his Officer Evaluation Reports (OER), documents reviewing his ongoing 17-plus years of service in the U.S. Army Reserve as an officer in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps.

Griffin said, “One of the best decisions I have ever made was to join the Army Reserve in 1996. The army has been an education and the source of many longstanding friendships. These OERs reflect the evaluations of numerous superiors and commanders spanning my almost 18 year career.”

The OERs detail Griffin’s duties and performance reviews from superior and commanding officers since receiving his direct commission in the U.S. Army Reserve as a First Lieutenant in June 1996. The release includes Griffin’s most recent OER covering the period 4/22/2012 – 4/21/2013.
