Sam Jonesi is a cadet in the Air Force ROTC at University of Missouri.   He’s a computer science student and hopes to use his training to help the military in cyber warfare.  He came to Story Corps with his friend Lakshna Mehta to talk about his hopes and motivations for his military life.

More than a dozen military members and their family and friends came to the KBIA studios in September to take part in StoryCorps’ Military Voices Initiative, in partnership with the MU Extension Community Arts Project. For the next week and a half, we’ll be sharing their stories during Morning Edition each weekday at 6:35am, and on kbia.org.
