In His Own Words: Using Knowledge Gained at SHU to Prepare Soldiers

“I enlisted in the Army National Guard after college, got a job as a logistics coordinator, deployment was canceled and went to OCS [Officer Candidate School] to earn my commission as a second lieutenant in the infantry. I use the knowledge I've gained from my time on the Hill in both the classroom (military history/social history) and on the field (team work/camaraderie) to help make decisions for my planning and to challenge my soldiers to understand why and who we are fighting, and why the world is as tumultuous as it is in its current state of affairs.”

Tom Whalen graduated from Seton Hill in  2010 with a degree in history.
