When I orginally joined in 1998, I joined solely for the college money. As time went by I grew to enjoy the military a little more. March 2003 I got activated and am still on the same mission. Since being on active duty I have gained knowledge I never knew existed. I want to continue on Active Duty after this mission is complete. My National Guard enlistment will be complete 17Jul and then I plan on going Active Duty. I want to do this because I can serve my country and I can provide my family the life that they deseve.
