This episode features two of our collegiate sisters from Vanderbilt who took part in a prestigious summer program exploring branches of the United States armed forces.
Mia Mercer and Jojo Flower, both Vanderbilt, are members of ROTC at their university with hopes of pursuing careers in the military, serving our country. Jojo and Mia attended the Career Orientation and Training for Midshipmen (or CORTRAMID-West), a four-week training experience where they were able to learn the ins and out of the United States Navy and Marine Corps. During the month-long program on bases in and around San Diego, they got to experience aviation, infantry and even drive a submarine! They discuss the transferable skills they took away from CORTRAMID-West and how this will guide them in their military careers post-graduation. We can expect great things from these two enterprising sisters who will proudly serve our great country!
