Bob Smetanka
Alumni Spotlight
Bob Smetanka

Everyone knows about the life-or-death danger that military members are exposed to when they enlist. Perhaps less appreciated is the everyday wear and tear that their bodies absorb because of the physical rigors of the job. 

Bob Smetanka is all too familiar with that. He joined the Marines during his last year of high school, just before Sept. 11, and served for five years, mostly at Camp Pendleton. He sprained his ankle multiple times. He hurt his shoulder. Nearly two decades later, he deals with persistent pain in his knees and lower back.
