Honored Military Alumni

Allen Nosler
Allen Nosler Class of 1991
Marine Corps, 5 Years
After serving 4.5 years in the Navy, I decided I wanted a little more action and joined the Marines. I was stationed mostly out in the West. My favorite part of the military was going through Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape (SERE) school. They put us in cages and starved us until we hallucinated. It was great!!!! May peace and good times be with you still serving and those of you with family memebers serving. Without people serving in our military all of these screwed up politicians would have no country to ruin:)
