Why I decided to enlist in the military
I enlisted in the military so that I could get a push in the right direction in life. I decided that I was going to enlist to help pay for college as well as to get hands on knowledge for future career paths as well as to serve my country.

Why I decided to the Navy
I chose to enlist in the Navy because I want to be able to travel around the world and see new places, although I’m excited to travel and visit new places I want to be able to come home when I get the chance to see my family. A compelling reason I had to enlist is that I have family members that have served and I want to continue the family tradition.
