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.

  1. Congrats on enlisting! that takes courage that not a lot of people possess. Many doors will open for you. Make sure you continue you education since the military pays for it. I have many family members and friends in different military branches, and I will warn you that the only way to get up in rank is to kiss some ass and beware that you do not get screwed over because not everyone is your friend. But good luck!
