Occupation: Bojarski's civilian job is supervisory logistics management specialist for the 316th ESC. His military service is as a logistics officer for the command.

Education: Bojarski holds bachelor's degrees in business administration and political science from Washington & Jefferson College.

Background: During the 316th's deployment to Kuwait from June 2012 to March, Bojarski developed a joint logistics training program with the Kuwaiti National Guard that allowed both sides to share information on how they go about moving people and equipment in combat conditions. Bojarski said strengthening ties with Kuwaiti forces helps make the United States more secure.

Quote: “It would make it easier for us to function on a battlefield. It's a hostile region. It definitely benefits us to work with the Kuwaitis and develop that partnership with them.”
