Any who - the medic has options if PA school didn't work out.
This soldier has a BS in nursing. That's why she wanted to press on and get her PA degree. Another soldier filled me in on some of the details. In the meantime, she has reapplied for the PA program again. I can see through the BS pretty quick and my BS meter wasn't pinging.

I do thank you for your service.
What? Thanking her for copping out?! Save your thanks if that's how you feel. A military career is what you make it but rarely have I heard it called copping out. Willing to die for your right to be anti-military.

millions have opted to head to serve in the military to "figure things out" - I did it as a 20-yr old who was lost while in college - it gave me a few years to find a career path, save some college money, grow up - it was in the 1980s and in no was it because I had a high sense of patriotism - it was all in my own self interest in trying to find my way....and it worked out as a career....

Allow me to rephrase a bit less harsh. Spending the time and money to get a Master's (which assumes a Bachelor's prior to) then making a career of being an enlisted person to me is a waste of time and money. Going the Officer's route makes more sense to me.

Regardless, thanks for the service to our country.
