Am I stupid or patriotic for joining the military?
I have a brother that's 24and a PFC in the Army. He's in Iraq right now and he works Intelligence. I've always wanted to be in the military and I'm self-disciplined, so I love the structure and the discipline. For me, there is no greater job than to be an infantryman. To me, its the most honorable job in the world... and I've worked all kind of lousy jobs. I can't wait to be serving with my brothers out there and my real brother. I love everything about the military... the only reason I didn't go sooner is that I'm the eldest child and always tried to please my parents, and the military was something they've always discouraged me from joining. After learning of my brothers enlistment which he did behind their backs, I decided that now is my chance to be somebody. This is something I've always wanted to do... I stayed in shape my entire life for just this reason. I hope I do well... thanks for listening.
I am not joining to fight for politics. I am joining to help my brothers already there, and my real brother. That is why i join. Politics will go right out the window when bullets are zipping my your head. I join because of the people already there.
