Four new veterinarians graduated from Colorado State University’s Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Program and were commissioned as officers in the U.S. Army Veterinary Corps during commencement this Spring.

Army 2nd Lt. Jeff Ullmer, Hailey Harraun, Kelly Horgan and Joshua Powell are among more than 700 veterinarians in the U.S. Army Veterinary Corps, which is a network of medical experts posted in dozens of countries and in all branches of the U.S. military. After graduation, the new veterinarians from CSU traveled to Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio for training and will be deployed to new posts from there.

CSU and Kansas State University each graduated four new military veterinarians in May; that’s the highest number to enter the U.S. Army Veterinary Corps from any university in the country this spring. CSU has six more students now in vet school bound for the corps.

In recent years, during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, highly trained combat canines have been deployed alongside U.S. troops to find improvised explosive devices before they blow.
