Bio

Paula Morgan is a woman veteran who began volunteering with GallantFew, Inc. in 2019 to begin coaching women veteran regarding suicide, depression, PTSD, and transition difficulties to include homelessness. As a part of continuing services, veterans are coached through this program at no charge. She shares her experiences through podcasts, business luncheons, and other speaking engagements. Paula began her military journey upon graduating high school by enlisting in the Army National Guard. Her basic training was completed in Ft. McClellan, Alabama. She then graduated from Ft. Gordon, GA, U. S. Army Signal Core, in the top 10% of her class, earning recognition as an Honor Graduate, and a Letter of Commendation from the Signal Core Staff and Command.

After four years of service National Guard service, she decided to go active duty Army as an Avionics Technician in 1991, affording her a lifetime dream to work in Aviation. She deployed to her first duty assignment, South Korea, in 1992. There she contributed to the support of CH-47 Chinook and UH-1H Huey helicopters. Her work supported the missions of the unit’s overall readiness, to include assuming the role of leadership in the absence of her NCOs. While in Korea, she was sent on a seven day training that introduced her to rappelling and mountaineering at the Cheju Do Training Center. Upon her return from overseas, due to changes in military needs, she was assigned as one of the first women in avionics to an AH-64 Apache Attack Helicopter Unit. The unit was undergoing a BRAC move, which then moved to Ft. Hood, TX. She was later reassigned to a UH-60 Blackhawk Unit as her final assignment in 1995.

She married a soldier, in 1994, whom she met while serving on duty in South Korea in 1992. She was honorably discharged from active duty in 1995 after eight years of service between the National Guard and Army. During her service, she maintained a secret security clearance, and earned several service medals. She continued to support her husband and was recognized by her husband’s unit for her willingness to serve the soldiers and families of the Ft. Hood Community. Once her husband completed his service in 1996, they relocated where they continued their careers in aviation. Eventually Paula stayed home with the children, volunteering in various capacities, attending college, and working full to part-time jobs as the children grew older.

After learning through the end credits of the movie, ‘Lone Survivor’, that one of their own brothers had been killed in action, she and her husband began looking for ways to be involved in continuing to serve their country. Paula actively engages in opportunities to mentor and assist veterans who are in transition. She hopes to begin writing stories to share their experiences. She holds a dual Master degree in Human Resources Development and Computer Resources and Information Management. She has taken several classes in psychology. She worked as an Adjunct College Professor in Texas for five years. She enjoys reading, writing, gardening, photography, to name a few.

Her husband travels with his employer to various places nationally and internationally as a Field Manager. He is an US Army Aviation Veteran, who followed in his father’s footsteps. She and her husband have been married for 25 years. They have two children, a son, 24 years old, who is married and works for TSA. Their daughter, 18 years, will attend the University of North Texas to pursue a degree in freelance and commercial photography and earn her bachelor’s degree in Studio-Art Photography. They now have one granddaughter. In their spare time, they like to travel, visit family, and make memories. Her husband’s sisters, and brother-n-laws are all veterans who serve and continue to serve both pre and post 9/11, in Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries.
