    Going Nowhere

    I feel like I'm doing nothing with my life and going nowhere. I'm stuck in the same rut, the same job, the same routine. I don't know what to do to break free from this cycle. I think that's how a lot of people end up joining the Army. Stuck in a life with no accomplishment, no...
