“I went right into the Army out of high school and signed up to be a medic,” Drew Lachey told CBSNews.com. “I did my basic training in Fort Leonard Wood, Mo., and then I did medic training in Fort Sam Houston and then I transferred to a field hospital in Fort Totten in Flushing, Queens. My girlfriend at the time—now my wife—was dancing at the time in New York. So I did that for a while, I drove an ambulance for a while in the city while I was doing my reserves. Then I got the call to be in a boy band and that’s when my life changed.”
”It taught me a lot of life lessons, a lot of humility, discipline, stronger work ethic—all great stuff,” he added.
