Earning his BA from Purdue in 2010, Ben commissioned into the Army through Purdue’s ROTC program and currently serves on active duty with the US Army Corps of Engineers in Cincinnati, Ohio. Since graduating, he has continued to study economics and Korean language in preparation to pursue a Master's degree in International Studies at Seoul National University.
