    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...

    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.
