Marine against US Flag

“I am flying high and ready to start my own business as a service disabled veteran. My goal, upon completion of the MBA program at Lynn, is to start my own airline and subcontract with the U.S. government.

I am eagerly looking forward to matriculating at Lynn University because I know that their faculty and staff will not fail me and my ambitions. It is my honor to be one of the first “yellow ribbon” recipients at Lynn. I promise to proudly represent past and present military service members and Lynn University with this tremendous opportunity.”

- Frederic P. Pollino, retired U.S. Army chief warrant officer
