Liz Ambros joined the military just to go to school. But, she got sent out on a mission to Iraq and ended up serving six years before getting back to the books.
27-year old Ambros says that service taught her a lot. Now, she's a kinesiology student; a student this year, on her way to being a sports doctor.
But, she walks campus with a lot more experience than most of her peers, having been the only medical provider for a platoon of 40 sailors and marines.
"Being a medic over there, as in Iraq or in Garrison, you know, working with Marines, I was able to pick up a lot of skills and things that most med students don't, wouldn't even dream of doing until their residency."
Ambros served as a corpsman in the Navy. She also says the transition from being overseas to being a student on campus was extreme, but she loved every minute of both experiences. Ambros graduates in May and plans to continue on to medical school.
