Why I Stay Army Reserve
“I wanted to join a force that was bigger than me. I wanted to stand for more than just me. I wanted my family and friends to look at me in a different way. I wanted to be a role model for smaller children to show them different paths that they can take. Being a soldier is an amazing feeling, I am a part of a force that is unique and positive. Being a soldier, has made
me appreciative of the small things in life. I am a better person today, because, I chose to become a soldier 5 years ago.”
