Everyone has his own opinion about college and how important it is, but only a few will take the initiative to follow through and back what they stand for.

My career has already been a major focus in my life over the last couple of years. Recently I decided to join the United States Armed Forces, and in doing so, I have the obligation to serve my country. In the beginning of my military career I asked myself the question of "How long will I serve?"

I am honored in knowing that I have the privilege to defend my country and the freedom it stands for.

As a soldier in the United States Army I have the responsibility to show leadership, and follow those of wisdom before me. In the fall I will be enrolled in the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program to better myself for the future. Every school has its own requirements academically, but regardless of what the school requires of me, I will execute my mission above the given standards. My major is geared towards my future as an engineer in the combat arms branch of the service. Mechanical engineering is my main focus currently, and as of now, I am looking forward to strengthening my skills as a mechanic and doing what is best for my career and my future....
