In knowing this I will be sure not to repeat this incident I feel the biggest problem is myself I am still trying to adapt to the army life and it is getting a little easier as the days go by I really don’t like being the jacked up soldier and I plan on changing and I plan on doing what I am told when I’m told so I can avoid getting caught up in something I cant get out of. The only way I want out of the army is either with an honorable discharge or to do my time, and I understand that I signed a contract and raised my right hand and made an oath to my country to protect and serve no matter what the cost, so I will do so by obeying all of the article to the best of my ability. I wish to pursue my Army career to the maximum amount of time possible. I hope to do at least 20 years time in service but I will most likely stay in longer. This job makes me feel proud and I really do not want to lose it. Now that I have gotten into trouble I fully understand the severity of obeying an order from the higher ups and I will do my best not to get myself into this predicament again because I would rather not lose what little rank I do have. I can not afford to lose that because I am struggling now trying to help myself with my financial situations and if I was to lose that I’m not sure what I would do to make up that money that I would be losing as of right now E-3 base pay is 1501.20 and E-2 pay is 1427.40 and E-1 pay is 1178.10 that is a huge difference in pay that is more than a 200 dollar difference that I defiantly can not afford to lose so I will be sure to straighten out my act so I do not lose that money. This will conclude my 2400 word essay.
