I joined the military (US Army) immediately following high school and feel as though it definitely sent me on the correct path in life. I was given an opportunity to learn to interact with individuals from different cultures and ethnic backgrounds. Despite our differences, we'd all worked together for a greater good and something bigger than ourselves. The hardest part of my job was being away from my biological family. The most enjoyable part was the unforgettable bond and memorie, whether up or down, that I've shared with my new found family (co workers.)
