Joining the Army seems the right decision

Col. Timothy Kopra answers Adam from Waxon, North Carolina, who asks; "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?"

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.
