Online Degrees - Study While You Serve

For First Lieutenant Linda Lee, this is her specialty ... helping others. "No soldier left behind," she told herself, and despite ending up on crutches herself for two weeks, she couldn't be happier with the outcome.

As an operations/training officer in the United States Army Reserve, Linda has a responsibility to her soldiers to provide them with the best. Her dedication doesn't stop there, it also shapes her family life as well.

Linda thrives on bettering herself, with two master's degrees, and an online PhD degree in progress. She is committed to personal growth, not just for her own sake, but for the sake of others. As a mother, she wants to give her four boys the best and see them succeed. As a leader, she wants to prepare soldiers to the highest standards, and holds great regard for their safety and training.

Linda states, "As a parent, leader or mentor you have a responsibility to help others reach their unique potential; that comes with an obligation, an obligation to give your best and expect more of yourself."

After finishing high school, Linda served six and a half years in the United States Air Force. She then worked as an industrial engineer for nine years before returning to continue her education. On top of an associate's degree and a bachelor's degree, she has a master's degree in management and a master of science in the foundations of education from Troy University. She is currently pursuing a doctoral degree in psychology at Capella University, an online university that has been a pioneer in online education, and plans to research and enhance the understanding of the influences of combat stress on soldiers.

Linda is assigned to Alpha Company (A Co) 328th Combat Support Hospital (CSH), where she is responsible for developing an innovative training program. She has two sons currently serving in the Army, as well as a seven and a ten year old who are active in sports such as football and track and field. Her husband, Donnie, retired in 1997 after serving over 26 years in the Army. Being in the military requires incredible self discipline, and Linda uses that to her advantage to organize and balance a busy, but rewarding life.

Linda says she eventually would like to earn the rank of general and serve as the chief of the Medical Service Corp or chief of the U.S. Army Reserve.

When things get tough, Linda reminds herself of her duty to her fellow soldiers and to her family. She finds strength in knowing that with every hard punch comes a lesson. Most importantly, she hopes to pass on what she has learned to her sons.
