Scholarship applicants are requested to submit a short essay explaining their reasons for joining the military, the way in which their service has changed their lives, and their plans following graduation.
"If there is one thing I have taken away from my term in the service, it is that helping and serving others is the most important thing I could ever do in my career," writes Butler.
