John Epp

I wish you a hearty hello! Thank you for visiting my webpage. I am a Masters student at the University at Albany - SUNY. I received my Bachelors from the university in 2016 and chose to return the following year to pursue a degree in Public History. Military history has always been at the core of my area of interest and I have my uncle to thank for that. He is a Colonel in the U.S. Army and I became fascinated in the military from a young age. I can remember bringing in toy soldiers for show and tell in kindergarten. Throughout my scool years prior to college, I was known as the history buff and could be found with numerous biographies and memoirs in my backpack. Since starting college in 2012 I have expanded my interest to include 20th century American political and social history. I hope to continue pursuing my degree and beginning a career working in collections at a musuem.

This is one of my favorite movie quotes of all time. It tells you that tomorrow is another bright and beautiful day!

There is nothing like a good nap!

Outside of history, I am a passionate baseball fan. I grew up watching the New York Yankees with my grandmother who is probably more passionate than myself. I like to say I am a 70-year old man in a 24-year old body. I love silence and can't wait for the day I can sit on my porch in my rocking chair and yell at kids get off my lawn!
