Combat-Tested Marine Cobra Pilot Selected to Become an Astronaut

Marine Maj. Jasmin Moghbeli's grade school dream of becoming an astronaut has wavered only once: during her combat deployment to Afghanistan as an AH-1W Super Cobra pilot from 2009-10.

"Had I been offered to leave and go be an astronaut, I don't know that I would have said yes at that time," Moghbeli told Military.com in a June interview, "because I loved what I was doing in that moment."

Regardless, Moghbeli said, the dream has served as a guiding force throughout her distinguished 12-year Marine Corps career, shaping her plans and giving added purpose to years of intensive work and study.

Glad she had an opportunity to kill some bad Muslim people before realizing her dream.
Thank you for your service!
I feel much safer knowing you and your partners are on the front line of defense in Afghanistan.
