Period of Service: 1976-1980

Branch: Marine Core

Occupation: Seargent

Deployment Locations: Camp Smith Hawaii, Washington D.C. 

What made you join the military?

“I wasn’t interested in going to college,” Ross stated.

She felt there was no way for her to do something meaningful without doing something dramatic. 

What impact has your service had on you?

“I learned how to be independent,” Ross said. 

What is your best memory, or most memorable experience while serving?

The best experience carries on after the military. Ross would be walking down the street and someone would ask if they were in the Marine Core with her. The military was a rewarding experience in service, and rewarding after service. There is a wonderful community that is created with Veterans.
