Joshua Cosme, Veteran, E-4 Specialist United States Army/Student, Jamestown Business College
Joshua has the distinction of witnessing the events that form the basis of National Geographic’s TV series, “The Long Road Home.” Joshua is currently completing his bachelor’s degree in Business Management at Jamestown Business College (JBC), and plans to pursue a master’s degree. He respectfully credits JBC for helping him reintegrate into civilian life, which has enabled him to coach his son’s little league team as well as helping his fellow veterans by getting them involved with organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Project and the local PFC Joseph P. Dwyer Program.
