The next question is from Adam Shields; Adam is from Waxon, North Carolina, Adams question is; "Joining the Army seems the right decision for me right now, I'm curious how you made the decision and how it lead you to become an astronaut?"
Well you know I had a little bit different path than most people in the Army. I went to West Point and I had several jobs in the Army that are very traditional, but then after that I had a more of a technical path. I went to graduate school became a test pilot and then worked at NASA. So just like my path was fairly unique, there are other unique paths in the Army as well. I would encourage any young person who has an interest in the Army to go out there and see what opportunities are available to them.
