Herzing student Carey Martell shares a few tips she learned in the Navy that are helping her through nursing school.

Why did I join the Navy? I often get asked this question, and for the longest time, I wasn’t sure how to respond. I have learned throughout my five and a half years of serving exactly why I love doing what I do. It is an honor to be able to say I am serving in the military. I want to protect my friends and family and travel the world.

Though it has been nearly 30 years since I wore a military uniform in the U.S. Army’s 534th MP unit at Fort Clayton in the Panama Canal Zone, some days it seems almost like yesterday. I am very proud of my service as an NCO and thankful for the friends and mentors that I met along the way. Recently, I had an opportunity to complete a tandem jump with the U.S. Army Golden Knights, and I must say that as an Army veteran, it does not get much better than that.
