Why I decided to enlist in the military
I have decided to enlist in the military because it’s something I’ve always wanted to do as a kid and I’ve always looked up to people who are. And being in the cadet program for almost 4 years now showed me that this is the right path for me.

Why I chose the Army
Originally I wanted to be a marine. However once I joined the Wisconsin Army Cadets I realized army is more my path and with hopes someday I can be an airborne ranger.

Fort Benning, Georgia

Basic training dates

Job in the military
