Earl Day—veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps and an AMU alumnus—is passionate about firefighting and helping others. After serving his nation, he now serves his community as a firefighter and EMT.
As a Marine, Earl served in the Middle East on four combat deployments, but he knew that furthering his education was important for a seamless transition from the military to civilian life. Upon completion of his military service, Earl looked to fulfill his educational goals and earned a Bachelor of Science in Fire Science Management with honors from AMU.
