Episode 18 – How serving our Country provided Michelle Young a life she could have never imagined.
After getting a glimpse into the world of what attending college might be like, Michelle knew she wanted none of it. Joining the military seemed like the next best option and unbeknownst to her, it would allow her to travel the world, support our country’s efforts, and even live through the events of 9/11 in a much more personal way than most.
In this episode, we talk to my friend, Michelle Young. We talk about how her four-year contract with the military turned into 20+ years working as a loadmaster and the experiences it allowed her to gather along the way.
