I didnt get the best grades in highschool not because I wasnt
smart, but because I knew that I didnt want to go to college. Was
very athletic and played football since I was a kid all the way up
until I graduated. In the marines right now. In the infantry, very
good at what I do. I lead a squad of 12 marines in combat, most of
them being older then I am. Not the ordinary 20 year old kid. I
just dont know if its what I want to do for the rest of my life.
I've been on 2 combat deployments to Afghanistan before my 21st
birthday and have seen my life flash before my eyes several times.
Near death experiences definately make you value everything
especially a girl that much more. Thinking about getting out and
going to school for engineering or becoming a firefighter.
Something along those lines.....I refuse to lose in life and strive
to keep moving forward reaching my goals and moving on to the next.
I want to look back on life sitting on my front porch with my wife
of 40 years, saying wow.....I did that, I took life by the horns
and whooped its ass.
