Topic: Life Altering decision


i think it would be interesting to know the things that changed people's lives. The little things you never thought you would get from service. The life altering, change of attitude, tone, lifestyle, or entire way of life being changed due enlistment and service. I spoke with my father in detail about his services. He told me it was up to me in the end but he also told his personal gains me to ask those who have served or are serving not about the monetary benefits but the benefits on the inside.

***I do not mean the monetary benefits***

ps i have an appt with a marine recruiter on the 29 of oct...tomorrow!!!!

Man, once you spend 6 months to a year in some third world hole, you will absolutely love your home country. The USA has never looked so good as when I came home from Kosovo and Iraq. People who have never set foot in a foreign country or have only visited "civilized" places will never know the true benefits of the USA.

They told me they were processing it and to be patient. When I checked back after 2 months (it's supposed to be done in 1.5) they found out they just forgot to process it.
That can't be my fault.
