Bakersfield College pre-nursing student Elaine Moreno was deployed for nine months to Baghdad with the Army Reserves in April of this year. Elaine is part of an operating room team specializing in ENT and will be sharing updates during her time overseas. During her deployment, she is still taking online courses, remaining committed to her education!
