Pvt. 1st Class Kelsie Knapp

            Since she was 16, Pvt. 1st Class Kelsie Knapp knew she wanted to join the Kentucky National Guard.  With the influence of two friends, Soldier and a Marine, Knapp decided it would be the best way to explore her leadership capabilities.  Now a water Purification Specialist with the 149th Brigade Support Battalion, Knapp intends to aim a little higher.

“I want to go officer and be the best that I can be because that is what the Army is looking for,” said Knapp.

Since enlisting, Knapp said the Kentucky National Guard has strengthened her  family relationships  enjoys the feeling that her whole community is behind her.  Knapp looks forward to using education benefits through school, and having a family that will also gain from Kentucky National Guard programs.
