Meet MGC Columbia legal assistant, Sergeant Jasmine Felipe of the Army National Guard.
“The military has hands down been the best experience of my life thus far. I have made incredible friendships. I have had to work outside of my comfort zone, which has made me grow as a person. I have had the opportunity to experience things that would not have been possible without the military. It has given me some of my best memories. I am proud to serve my country and will continue to do so for as long as I can.”
