A U.S. sergeant major’s journey to his #PurdueGlobal diploma

U.S. Army Sgt. Maj. Alan Thomas is #PurdueGlobalProud.

Thomas says that although he’s already reached the highest enlisted rank in the Army, there was a certain pride he could only feel by finally earning the bachelor’s degree he’s considered most of his adult life. This video is an inside look at Thomas and his family as they anticipate the moment of a lifetime — crossing the stage in person at the West Lafayette #PurdueUniversity campus.

#PurdueGlobal, backed by Purdue University, is a popular choice among military families because it was built for working adults and offers access to a trusted education from anywhere in the world. And with the power of a respected degree behind them, they know they can do more.
