He is required to interview each of the elite infantrymen that he supports at least two to three times during their careers. In order to accommodate their busy training and deployment schedules, he interviewed many of them during field training and also during early mornings and late nights. Valentin is one of many career planners who serve more than 25,000 combat-ready Marines and Sailors throughout 1st Marine Division.
