Week 2 Washebek

This is Week 2 journal entry from Carly Washebek who is a student reporter for the War: Through Their Eyes Vol. 3 Warriors & Students multimedia project.
Week 2 Washebek

Kat and I first met at the Veteran's Resource Center on campus where she works.

I got a response from Kat McCard yesterday, and we got together today just to meet and talk about some background information.  I was nervous to meet her at first, but she is very laid back, so she made me feel comfortable right away.  I went prepared with a list of questions that would help me to start creating a timeline for Kat.  I started with the basics like birthday, parent’s names, siblings, hometown, current location, children, etc.  I figured I would try to get as much of this information right off the bat so I won’t have to worry about it later.  Kat told me she joined the Navy right out of high school.  She was a nuclear engineer.  I knew her journey in the Navy is going to make for a good story.  Plus, Grace said that she hasn’t had a veteran who was in the Navy yet, so I’ll be the first one!  I’m looking forward to what the project has in store.
