“Pacific Partnership is the perfect type of mission for my first deployment, because it gives me the feeling that I am actually making an impact on the world by doing something bigger than myself,” said Synowiec. “Building this library and multipurpose room in Thailand for school children is a way that I get to give back to the community while also being given the chance to learn different techniques from the Royal Thai Armed Forces”
