I feel very accomplished. About a week and a half ago I got enlisted into the U.S. Army and it felt awesome. I have always wanted to join the military but i was not sure if it was something i really wanted to do. I put some thought into it and finally made my decision. I don't think I am able to tell what my job is but i am proud to say that I got promoted to the rank of E-2 because of some high school accomplishments that i had obtained. I feel honored to be able to fight for my country. It took me until now to take the military serious, it would be times when I use to stand up for the pledge but not put my hand over my heart or show some kinda respect, now when I see people doing that i get a little upset because i now know what it truly means. I can only imagine those families who have had people die in battle what they must feel like when they see things of that nature. I will stand up for my country, honor my country, and represent my country. I am a United States Army soldier.
