Kim Johnson-Marble ‘08 Inspired to Join Military After 9/11


Kim Johnson-Marble ‘08 was interviewed by ABC 10’s France Wang ’10 on why she was inspired to join military after 9/11. 

“I wanted to be a part of giving back, showing how strong we are as a country,” Johnson-Marble said. “I told my parents ‘I’m going to be in the army.’

Johnson-Marble said when she was giving her oath, she had that same gut feeling again in her stomach that she had during 9/11. 

“Who would’ve thought the kid 16 years ago watching the TV would have boots on the ground in Afghanistan, where those terrorists once walked?” Johnson-Marble said.
