Since she posted her pictures in the force's uniform, the photos have gone viral gathering over 40,000 likes with thousands of retweets. Omobolaji said she works harder because she knows the people she represents.
Ike Eweama, another Nigerian, also made the country proud after he was promoted to the rank of colonel in the army.
It was gathered that Colonel Eweama is a PhD holder whose service in the US Army earned him the promotion. Eweama was born in Lagos, Nigeria, and is a decorated member of the United States military.
In other news, there was an inspiring and trending video showing some members of the US Army singing the country’s national anthem.
The officers were lined up as they melodiously sang Arise, O Compatriots. Nothing is more amazing than seeing people of a different nationality praising your country in a song.
While some of them sang off-hand, others had to follow by reading the words from a piece of paper.
