I'm leaving, and I hope I'm coming back

Recommended Posts

Hollows    428

After the November 13th Paris attacks, I sat down with myself in my dark dorm room and started thinking. I thought to myself: How, why, who could or would want to do this? This stuck with me throughout Christmas break, and hit me hard when I went to my best friend's Air Force graduation from basic training on December 30th. Despite protests form close friends, and even making my best friend's mother, whom is like my second mother cry when I told her, I enlisted in the United States Army after a single year of college on the 14th of March, because someone needs to stand up for those who can't fight for themselves.

I am leaving May 23rd, and won't be home until December 9th projected final graduation. I will be going to Airborne and RASP/Ranger school, which is why it is taking longer for me to graduate from everything than everyone/everything else. When I come back, it will be for about 3 weeks until I was informed I have a 90% chance on going to Afghanistan.

Here's my picture, but be warned! These days, I've since shaved and got 2-3in shorter hair. No buzz-cut, but not long-long anymore, either. Might even post the 3m work out video if I can get the video URL.

My Recruiter gave me this video to motivate me through RASP/Ranger school. You're going to kill me before you can make me quit.

Well you have my respect. Let me tell you something, Afganstan isn't a fun place Black I have seen it. I respect that you chose the Army and are actually doing something rather then saying it. You joined a family that will always have your back no matter what. I wish you the best of luck! Come back in one peace brother and give them hell!

I guess see you in few years then when they decide to do another NATO mission in Syria then. I just need to wait for about year until i can finish Estonian 8 month conscription (or whatever the word is) and then continue it as my job. Keep your head down. o7
