Jalalabad, Afghanistan – When U.S. Army Spc. April Harvey walked into the recruiting office near her hometown of Gallup, NM, after graduating high school, she knew she wanted to take control of her life, and she wanted to do it her way.

As with any soldier that enlists into the Army, Harvey was offered several different jobs, or military occupational specialties. While at the recruiting station, Harvey was offered a series of jobs: 68W (Medic), 42A (Human Resources Specialist), 92Y (Logistics Specialist) and other jobs that just weren’t the kind of thing that fit Harvey’s personality.
