Why I decided to enlist in the military
I enlisted to have a purpose in life and work towards something that is much greater then me and become the best version of myself and do something that is worth it. I want to leave behind a legacy for my family and give the best name possible.

Why I chose the Marine Corps
I picked the Marine Corps because the challenge  – both mentally and physically – is one of the hardest things you can do in life. I want to develop professionally and have a very humbling experience and learn how to pick myself up from rock bottom. They have the camaraderie of sister and brother hood.

Job in the military
I would like to be an Intel and communications operator for the Marine Corps and just learn all about that job and how to do it the best that I can.

Family in the military
Both my grandpas and my dad served in the military. My grandpa on my mom’s side served in the Navy for two years. My dad’s dad served in the Vietnam war, and my dad served in the army for two years.
