Celebrating Dragon Veterans 2021 – Peyton Schwehr

At MSUM, we value the dedication, responsibility and leadership veterans bring to our university, both as students and as employees. We proudly honor all veterans who have served our country and recognize a few of our Dragon veterans for their commitment to serve and protect.

Peyton Schwehr, Computer Information Systems

Dilworth native Peyton Schwehr is in his first year at MSUM studying computer information systems. He is a cyber systems operator for the Air National Guard in Grand Forks, N.D., where he has served for nearly three years. His Guard service helped him realize he wasn’t interested in computer science but that, “I was more interested in the privacy and security of data, so I switched to computer information systems,” Peyton said.

Peyton is proud to carry on a family tradition of service to country. He says the military has given him an affordable option to go to college, an excuse to travel to other countries, and a great way to build connections for future employment opportunities. “My experience with the military has been positive.”
