The seeds of Eric Harshman’s second career took root during his 12-year enlistment in the Indiana Air National Guard. That’s when he began helping out at his in-laws’ golf course, and discovered a passion for turf.

“I fell in love with it, working outdoors with my hands,” recalled the former aircraft armament technician.

He did three tours of duty in the Middle East, loading aircraft with 5,000-pound bombs and fixing fighter jet weapon systems. Standing on a roof at his base in Qatar, he could see for miles – and there was no green.

When Harshman’s tours ended, his commanding officers granted him time to attend Rutgers Professional Golf Turf Management School in the fall of 2007.

The local contractor handling meals at the base had been let go, so Cesmebasi, a food advisor, oversaw a staff of 75 soldiers and airmen, ensuring they adhered to sanitary regulations.

“My biggest concern was safety,” recalled Cesmebasi, a 2008 graduate of the Environment and Public Health (EPH) course run by Rutgers' Office of Continuing Professional Education (OCPE). “I could not have a food-borne illness outbreak since it could impair our mission at a critical time.”
