HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

In early November, students from Chapman Middle School got the chance to go behind the arsenal gates to learn more about potential career paths.

For a 7th or 8th grade student, the future may seem far off, but Major Jaime Santiago knows it will come sooner than they think. That's why the Precision Fires Rocket and Missile Systems Project Office decided to open their doors to the kids.

"It's something that really benefits the community, and also benefits our future leaders and gives them a better understanding of what we do here at Redstone and at Precision specifically," said Major Santiago.

The kids got the chance to learn about missile and rocket launchers and even got to check out a few pieces of equipment. The day sparked an interest in 8th grader Rashad Townsend. He said, "I was wondering if I wanted to be in the Army and this kind of made me make my decision."
 
That decision could end being one that will put him on the path to his future now.
