I have served in the military for almost 10 years. I have done things people my age cannot even imagine. I have been to places and have seen things that most have not. All of the experiences in my life have made me who I am today. They have shaped me into a man that many people admire and strive to be like. I have led and trained soldiers in some of the hardest tasks and most extreme conditions that exist. My life has not been perfect or easy by any means, but I would not change one single thing. I believe that everything that has happened to me, happened for a reason.
