She knew how much her sister, Brionna, loved her experience last winter as a Terps freshman, but Stephanie did her homework before deciding she wanted to be a Terp, too.

A team of scientists from Aberdeen Proving Ground has completed the historic mission of destroying the most dangerous of Syria's declared chemical weapons stocks, Pentagon officials said Monday. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel called Navy Capt. Rich Dromerhauser on Monday morning to congratulate the team of some 64 civilians and contractors aboard the MV Cape Ray, Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said. The chemists and engineers from the Edgewood Area of Aberdeen Proving Ground worked for more than a month aboard the specially fitted container ship to neutralize 600 tons of chemicals, including the World War I blister agent sulfur mustard and the sarin precursor DF. Officials have said the first-ever shipboard destruction of the weapons, performed under heavy international guard in the Mediterranean Sea, could serve as a model for future efforts to eradicate chemical weapons from the world's arsenals.
