Meet Second Lieutenant Tyriek Wiley, an
Economics major at Syracuse University. Upon graduation, 2LT Wiley will become a Finance Officer in the Active Duty Army.

2LT Wiley earned his officer commission after attending the two-year Early Commissioning Program (ECP) at Valley Forge Military Academy in Pennsylvania. After completing his two years at Valley Forge, he chose to complete his degree at @syracuseu for free.

“I joined the Army to gain experience as a leader and to earn my degree without having student loans. Also, I grew up in a military family and my dad is a big influence in my decision to serve. Now, I’m finishing up my bachelor’s degree and get to serve other Soldiers and their finance needs. I think everybody should give the military a try because it has so much to offer.”
