Growing up on a farm in western Missouri, Specialist Daniel Lindsay would eventually leave and enter the U.S. Army and serve in what was then West Germany during the Cold War from 1984-1986, driving a tractor trailer as part of the 515thTransportation Company, helping them to complete their mission of petroleum supply to the southern half of that country.
The service Daniel portrayed in the military runs deep in his actions. As a note taker for disabled students, a water sampler in the Illinois watershed, a volunteer to SARPA in their mission of aide to assault recovery cases and a grade school chemistry teacher, he exemplifies a life of service.
Upon graduation, Daniel plans to move to China to teach English for a year, furthering his understanding of how fundamentally connected we all are. After this experience, Daniel hopes to use his background in chemistry to further people’s understanding of health conditions like depression.
