Christian Jacobs writing as a veteran and a student

Christian Jacobs came to Texas State University after nearly five years of military service. As he passes the half-way point of his college career he looks forward towards his future.
Christian Jacobs was born and raised in Laurel, Maryland. In 2005 he moved with his family to Waco, Texas. A culture shock that was surprisingly easy to overcome, although he does enjoy making fun of Texan's fear of snowflakes. After graduating high school in 2007, Jacobs worked at the Davis Gallery in Austin.
 Deciding it was time for a change he enlisted in the United States Navy in November of 2007. After initial training in Pensacola, Florida he was stationed in Hawaii for three years and was deployed to nine countries around the Pacific. His last duty station was in Denver, Colorado where he worked at the Aerospace Data Facility on Buckley Air force Base.
Christian Jacobs is now a junior at Texas State University majoring in mass communications with a minor in history. He is active volunteering in a variety of civic organizations including Habitat for Humanity and Veterans Affairs. Outside of these interests, he travels widely, reads, writes, tubes and enjoys living in San Marcos and the Texas hill country.
