To whom this may concern, I am a USMC veteran who was discharged honorably with electrical/mechanical knowledge looking to further my education and attempting to get a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Getting any sort of help would greatly increase my chance in achieving my goal to be the best version of myself. Thank you for your time and consideration.
