Let The Army Help Pay For College

I'm Specialist Faye Taylor; I'm a 37 Foxtrot, Psychological Operations Specialist. I'm from Owensboro, Kentucky from a really large family of 15.

I actually had a lot of difficulty completing my degree before the Army and I lost all my scholarships and realized I got to get through school.

A recruiter told me about the Army. The educational benefits pretty much attracted me to the Army.

I talked to a lot of the counselors' here on-post. They directed me which way I should go, how I could get my education back on track. They were right there beside me and I got my bachelors degree.
