    In Need Of Information

    Hello all strange people. It's a month until my 18th birthday and I plan on joining some branch of the military. I'm thinking either Army or Airforce. I've done research on the Internet, but it's not the same thing as first-hand advice. I could really use information and advice...

    What Is A "Good Man"

    This year has been one of the worst of my life. It started off with living in a sexless relationship and then the end of that long term committed relationship. As the year went on I lost my job, had a close family member die and was diagnosed with a serious illness and everything...

    I fight battles daily.

    I train hard, eat hard, sleep hard. I exercise regularly. My brain makes my job difficult but on the outside I fit in with the lads because I am, first and foremost, a man. As a soldier I have to be strong, confident, composed and calm under fire. I have suffered numerous...

    once a soldier always a soldier.

    I Am A Beacon

    I am a beacon when all other lights go out. I am an angel in a hellish waste land. I am a sheep dog keeping the wolves at bay. I stand on guard ready to throw myself into the fight. I am a hero when I am needed and forgotten by many when I am not. I am hope, I AM A SOLDIER.

    My profile is about being a father of 2

    and a husband in the Army. I don't normally share my experiences with anyone but due to the nature of my job, some things will get omitted. Hope everyone can relate in one way or another.
