Why social work?

My aim in the social work profession is to bring positive changes to our men and women in uniform. My plan is to join the Air Force after graduating with my MSW, so that I can work to change some of the internal policies that hinder service members from reaching their full potential in their military careers. For them to know that they are highly valued is the reason I chose social work.
