Caleb Johnson graduated from the United States Military Academy in 2014 with a B.S. in Chinese & Russian language and a minor in environmental engineering. During his time at USMA, he developed a passion for East Asian affairs, which he actively pursued while studying abroad in both Taiwan and China, participating in conferences on Sino-U.S. relations, and chairing the West Point Japanese Forum. Additionally, he was appointed to serve as a host for multiple civilian and military exchange personnel from China, Japan, and Taiwan, and received awards for scholarly excellence in both Chinese and environmental engineering. Upon the completion of his studies, he was commissioned as an Officer in the U.S. Army Medical Service Corps. After completing medical training, Caleb requested to be stationed in the Republic of Korea, and spent two years with a medical unit in the capital, Seoul. He then deployed to Iraq with the 82nd Airborne Division in support of Operation Inherent Resolve during the recapture of Mosul. Upon his return to the United States, he was assigned to multiple units at Fort Bragg, NC until his discharge. Most recently, he completed post-baccalaureate studies in East Asian languages at both the University of Pennsylvania and University of Delaware. Caleb is currently pursuing an M.A. in global affairs at the Yale Jackson Institute and a J.D. at Harvard Law School.  Through his joint degree coursework, he plans to explore the effects of culture on legal systems and norms, both within individual countries and across the international stage.
