I grew up in a small town in Missouri. My first brother was born when I was two years old. My second brother was born when I was five. My first year of High School I started dating my first girlfriend. At year 4 of high school I enlisted in the army. Three weeks after graduation I left for basic training. One week after leaving basic training my girlfriend broke up with me. Three days later I was shipped to the coast and boarded a ship headed to the Green Sea. Six weeks later we entered the Green Sea. On the 17th we were deployed inland.
