Zachary Bowman (A19)

Zachary Bowman (A19) enlisted in the U.S. Army at the age of 18 shortly after graduating Broadneck High School in 2010. He has deployed to Afghanistan once in 2011 as part of a Polish-led task force that operated in the country’s Regional Command- East. While there he served as an M224 gunner for 2-2 Infantry’s Bravo company and Focused Targeting Force. Upon returning from Afghanistan in January 2012 he served as an Indirect Fire Infantryman in 2-2 Infantry’s reconnaissance platoon.

Before leaving active duty in January 2014 he also served as a team leader in 3rd Brigade, 1st Infantry Division’s personal security detachment and as a squad leader in the reconnaissance platoon. Prior to attending St. John’s College he studied Psychology and Kinesiology at Anne Arundel Community College. He chose St. John’s College after attending a Friday night lecture hosted by Dr. Leslie Kay and realizing that there should be more to college than just getting a degree; he wanted to also learn how to best be a member of a community. After graduating St. John’s College he plans on either returning to active duty or teaching and attending graduate school for Social Psychology.

Zachary invites prospective students to contact him with any questions they may have about life as a Johnnie. Email Zachary at zachary.bowman(at)
