After serving four years in the Navy, Bryan Hernandez was ready to start the next chapter of his life. He had been a damage controlman on the USS Nimitz, working as a first responder aboard one of the largest aircraft carriers in the world. He had seen the world, traveling to India, Bahrain, and Japan while in the service.
Now a veteran, he was back home in San Antonio and interested in becoming a firefighter. But he did not have a clear idea on how to enroll in college.
