One of the students that will be leaving Lowry and going into the US Military is Jordan Neshem. He has joined the Army and will start basic training in July 2022, he has to go through 12 to 16 weeks of training.

Neshem chose the Army because he thinks it is the branch that will suit him best.

“I chose the branch that I am joining because I felt the army is the best branch when it comes to choosing what I want to do and where I want to go,” said Neshem.

Neshem hopes joining the Military will help him retire at a young age.

“I plan to try and make the military a career and retire at a fairly young age so I can work on my projects and vehicles, and live it up,” said Neshem.

He was inspired to join the Army when his older brother joined the Marines. One of his closest friends is also going to join so he asked if he wanted to as well because he did not have a plan after high school.

“I was inspired by my older brother Zachary Printz when he went into the Marines to do something great with his life,” said Neshem. “I wanted to be just like him, also both my mom and dad, strive for me to do the best I can do and be a bigger person.”

Johnathan Villalobos is another student that will be joining the Military. He will also be in the Army, he thinks it will be an excellent place to start.

“I feel like the Army is a better choice for me and mainly special forces came to my mind,” said Villalobos.

Villalobos hopes to join young and staying for a long time will help with retirement.

“I can use it for retirement if I stay long enough and don’t have to worry about working until I am 50 or 60,” said Villalobos.

Another US Military student joining the Army is Nickolas Jung he is joining for his civil duty and pride for his country.

“My Civil duty and pride for my country inspired me to join,” said Jung.

Jung was inspired by his grandfather who has been his idol as well as WW2 General George S. Patton.

He will be joining in the next three years and has to go through 15-20 weeks of training.
