“I’m going into the military and would like to do intel or criminal justice investigation within the military,” Mitchell said. 


Mitchell will be signing to join the military within the next few months. She said she isn’t sure which branch but she’s thinking about joining the Army National Guards or the Marine’s. Mitchell comes from a long line of family who has served in the military including her father who was in the Navy and an older brother that is in the guards.


This is something I want to do and pursue. I want to serve my country. ”
