Oh, the places we go … University of Illinois alumni are globetrotters who travel near and far, but never forget their Alma Mater!

Four fellow Illini in the U.S. Navy took the time to show their school spirit while serving their country last fall. Lieutenant Commander Samuel Morrison, ’01 ENG; Lieutenant Matthew Egeland, ’10 LAS; Capt. Jose Pedroza, ’93 LAS, ’95 UIC, DDS ’97 UIC; and Lieutenant Jacob “Jake” Reed, ’06 LAS, are pictured aboard the USS George Washington (CVN-73) as it passes through the Straits of Magellan along South America’s southern tip in November 2015.
