Military Life

I am in the Army and have been fo four years. I have been to Afghanistan, Iraq, and Kuwait. It's not a bad job and it's very fullfilling when people thank us. You know complete strangers thanking you for keeping them safe. It's a strange feeling as I have always been the "badboy" people stay away from. Yes people have died that I knew and yes I miss them but they believed what I believe. We are doing the right thing for these people in the middle east. It is worht it and we volunteered to be here. I love the military. I am happy to serve and honored to be here.

I ship out for basic training in July. :) This inspires me to continue, stay strong, and do it for my country.

The armed services can be salvation for many. My nephew is a career Marine and it has opened up so many possibilities in life for him. If he hadn't joined, he'd be livin' in a podunk logging town getting drunk and disorderly like the rest of the natives.
