NASA selected decorated former Navy SEAL and Harvard Medical School graduate Dr. Jonny Kim to begin the process of becoming an astronaut Wednesday.

Kim will report for duty to the 2017 Astronaut Candidate Class this coming August after a long career in the Navy, which placed him in more than 100 combat operations, according to an announcement from NASA. Kim enlisted in the Navy after graduating from Santa Monica High School in 2002, at which point he completed training at Naval Special Warfare and joined SEAL Team Three in San Diego.
