Becoming an Army Engineer to continue a life of service all over the world
A young Ben Ketchum plays with Beninese children in 2002 while his family was in the country with a hospital ship his father captained that was associated with the non-profit Mercy Ships organization. The ship and its crew provided surgical care to impoverished communities in developing countries all over the world. Growing up around that instilled a desire to serve others in Ketchum and he ultimately joined the U.S. Army as an engineer where he is now a captain with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and supporting humanitarian assistance and other projects in Benin and several other countries in Africa and Europe.
