Being All I Can Be.

Two weeks ago I made the decision to enlist in the Army.I wish I had a good story, but to be honest it was impulse decision.I have plenty friends who are either currently in Iraq or had served in Iraq and it made them better men and women.My oldest brother served until he was discharged.I also have an uncle who is currently in Afghanistan now;and my grandfather served in the Army.

Also, I owed a lot in Federal student loans and I wanted to go to finish school out west.I was initially going to school and such but I just didn’t feel like I was accomplishing anything, school Tuesdays and Thursdays and work everyday, the thought of I will be someone tomorrow wasn’t good enough for me. It kind of clicked instantly one night, I stayed up one night researching it and the next day went into my local recruiters office.Talked to him and he told me what I could get into. And being a Public Affairs Broadcast Specialist would be great because I’m going to school for film.

I’m also a supporter of peace, and I always have been. We should try not to get into wars if we can help it, and we should remember that a large number of people killed in any war are not combatants, but civilians. Kids, women, the elderly. A lot of people try to ignore that truth.

Maybe in the end I want to leave some kind of legacy behind.
