how has the military changed your life? info
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The degraded and decayed state of moral and patriotic feeling, which thinks that nothing is worth war, is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing that is more important than his own safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free, unless made so and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

I'm not in yet but it's changed my life already.
I'm taking more risks, not caring about consequences, breaking rules and growing my hair and a moustache and beard because I know that once I get in, it'll be 2 years of being completely squared away, disciplined and listening to ranking personell.

I asked about being too old because I can definitely see a big difference between my 25 year old arse and people who are under 21. My wife, who is a bit younger than me, complains every now and then that I am "too old." I see that more as a compliment than a problem 8). Don't tell her I said that
ANYWAYS, to understand how the Army has changed me, you must first understand me when I was 17. That will take a bit of typing and I should have my post up tomorrow. Then all of you can see the beaten path I took to get where I am now. I am not sure yet if that is a good thing or not...

As a cadet, the way I look at people and situations has drastically changed. I have become much more flexible to others opinions, while maintaining my own.
Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is face.

im 19, i just turned it the 16th too so im pretty young. its wierd, the first time i came home i saw all my old friends but it was kinda wierd seeing them doing the same old thing, ive gone through 3 different schools and matured a lot since i got in. the little things dont bother me as much as they used to as if there is more meaning in my life and the little crap is a waste of time. ive learned to walk tall and not be so timid. standing up for yourself is a big thing. i used to not be able to stand up to someone but now.
i became independant and nolonger depend on my parents. i dont reallly think of home as where i came from but of where i am. My GF dumped me and it didnt bother me as much as when i had a girl dump me in HS. i think its changed my attitude more than anything else. my "home" life is now just calling home and saying hello. its a very good thing IMO and now i actually have to go take one of my CH-46 tests :/...i hate hydraulics.
i hope that helps you if you have any questions or need me to expound on anything just ask and if it didnt help you at all, im sorry. good luck w/ your paper
