I'm meeting with my recruiter today. I've wanted to do military since I was 17. I let my mom and dad "guilt trip" me out of it. I'm 22 and I've been married four years. I now have a home and a two year old boy. I haven't been able to shake the want for military life though. My wife is extremely supportive and now that my mom knows I'm comitted, she is on board as well. My old man still has a hard time with it.
I wanted to publicly thank all the family members of the fine men and women called to serve. I know I couldn't do this without my wife's support and I hope to win over my dad when I get back from BCT and MOS.
