I am Jake Baker, a 40 year employee of the Department of the Army. I was a Navy brat and as such had a rich and diverse background for a child, when it came to various customs and cultures. All of which were far different from the Ward and June Cleaver household I grew up in. In 1981, I joined the United States Army, I am a Veteran and was a Paratrooper assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division. I served in Operations Gallant Eagle and Urgent Fury. After the Army I started as a Civil Servant at Ft. Bragg, NC and became a dues paying member, in April 1989. After suffering a poor management official I became a labor activist in January of 2009. I served as a steward, and on the Executive Board of the local. I am currently the Chief Steward and Fair Practice Program Director for AFGE, 1770. In 2015, I ran an unsuccessful bid for election against the Civil Rights Icon, Ms. Augusta Thomas for the National Vice President of Women's and Fair Practice. Which brings me to today, and being appointed to the 4th District, Fair Practice Affirmative Action Coordinator, by my NVP.
