Student and Alumni Testimonials

ROTC Cadet and Aspiring Military Nurse Abby Aiello

When I graduate, I will be a nurse in the military. I've always just wanted to be a part of something bigger. I feel like the Army is the biggest you can get to be a part of. A team that's working towards a common goal and that's what I really want to do.
