Week 1 Counts
I am a third-year student at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh (UWO) studying journalism and economics. I have been a part of a few of Grace Lim’s projects before, including Endeavors Magazine in Spring of 2012, and the second volume of War: Through Their Eyes, which was published in the Fall of 2012. Mark Maurer, the soldier I will be profiling for this project, is also a third-year student at UWO. He is majoring in criminal justice and minoring in military science, but his true career passion is in finance. Mark enlisted in the National Guard when he was 17 and a junior in high school. He served in Iraq from Jan. 2009 to Jan. 2010, and began his college career in Sept. 2010.
