SPECIALIST SCOTT PETERSON
THE DECISION TO SERVE
Scott Peterson is a highly motivated young man who knows what he wants to do. His mother, Lisa, will tell you, “As a child, he had a very strong will, and he was very determined.” So when he told her of his interest in joining the Army Reserve, she wasn’t entirely surprised. She did, however, want to know more about what it meant to be in the Army Reserve, what his commitment would be and how long he would serve.
Lisa and Scott researched online together to get many of the answers they needed. Scott visited the unit he’d be training with locally. To help them learn even more, two recruiters came to their home. They took the time to explain to Scott and his mom what Scott could expect in the Army Reserve, as well as the financial benefits the Army Reserve offered. Scott was impressed.
