Three students at the Southern School of Optometry in Memphis have been chosen.
The U.S. Army selected them for a scholarship program.
They took the oath of office at a ceremony Tuesday at the school.
Trent Gaasch, Kyle Anderson and Kelly Bain are the recipients in the picture.
There were just eight students chosen nationwide for the program.
The scholarship helps pay for their graduate studies.
Upon their graduation, they will begin their formal military training and pin on the rank of captain in the active duty Army.
