Salt Lake City, IL ( March 22, 2013 - Eric Butera has been taking different courses to promote his own knowledge and skill set since 1999. It was in 1999 that he completed basic training in the army. After that, he took advantage of a number of different educational opportunities provided through the army.

"A year after I finished basic training I successfully completed a medical specialist course," says Eric Butera. After the completion of the course on March 1, 2000, Eric Butera was rewarded with a diploma from the Academy of Health Sciences from Fort Sam. For the next two years, Eric Butera continued taking courses. "I earned my associate's degree from Salt Lake Community College in 2001 and then completed the Primary Leadership Course in 2002," says Eric Butera.

Many people assume just being in the military builds strong leadership abilities. However, the army has special courses including leadership courses like Eric Butera's. The course was conducted by the United States Army Noncommissioned Officer Academy at Fort Lewis, Washington.
"The army offers many educational opportunities because people need skills for life after they're done serving," says Eric Butera. He illustrates this by listing the courses he took under the army including a basic administrative course and a motor vehicle operator course. "A year before I was honorably discharged I was certified as a professional truck driver," says Eric Butera.

While these skills may not help Eric Butera in his pursuits today, if he had decided to pursue a different career path, it may be relevant. "After I left the military I did take courses in advanced first aid. However, I determined that I wanted to earn my bachelor's degree in recreational therapy," says Eric Butera.

Eric Butera's determination to continue his education comes from his desire to help veterans. Eric Butera regularly volunteers to help disabled veterans at his local Veteran Affairs Medical Center. "Recreational therapy cares for a person's whole well-being and I want to help my fellow servicemen," says Eric Butera.
