As a young man just out of high school and entering the Air Force, Dr. Bobby Martin didn't see the value of continued education. He spent his free time at parties instead of libraries. When he left the military after four years, he was faced with the reality that no one would hire him. He was married, with a child and doing odd jobs. He decided to return to the military, but with a different mindset.
"I had experienced what it was like to be under-educated, so I figured let's see what it's like to be educated," Martin said.
