A path unforeseen: Veteran establishes unexpected career in military
Monday, April 4, 2011
The waning months of one’s high school experience can quickly transition into a stressful event as the emerging reality of decisions to be made comes to forefront.
Whether locating an appropriate college or vocational school, or beginning a job that can potentially flourish into a career, there exists important choices that can affect an individual’s life for years to come.
Local resident Mike Tanner is all too familiar with such decisions.
Born in the Hartsburg area, Tanner graduated from Ashland High School in 1986.
“I really didn’t know what I wanted to do after school,” stated Tanner. “One day, the announcement was made that the Marine Corps recruiter would be in the counselor’s office, and I decided to go visit with him.”
