Over 32 schools watching your every single movement. Over 200 people watching whether or not you make a mistake and 5 judges grading you on precision and even creativity in some aspects. I would experience this almost every month during competition, but not until my 10th grade year. Right before high school my friend Oscar had convinced me to join JROTC and since I was planning on joining the service I thought it would be a good idea. The class had many after school teams such as rifle team, drill, and raiders. I hadn 't joined any of the teams and because of that I was looked down upon by upperclassmen and others who had joined those teams. In the period I was in, almost every freshman would grow up to be great leaders for our school and for the JROTC program. As for me I could care less and decided only on passing my classes and didn 't care about being active in my school and for that I hadn 't made much friends in the JROTC program almost like an outcast, but that also went for any other kid
A: I did not plan on becoming at first I was actually involved with the sport of curling and was pretty good if I do say so myself. Unfortunately I sustained an injury to my leg and no walk with a cane and sometimes a wheelchair because my mobility is now compromised.

Being the son of a Lieutenant in the United States Navy, I have always had an interest in the military and a desire to also serve and follow his footsteps. It was not until high school when I decided that I wanted to attend the Naval Academy. Initially, I had a few friends attend the academy and they have all told me that it was challenging, but it was a great experience. However, it was my father who first introduced me the Naval Academy and guided me onto the right path for which
As my junior year starting JROTC as the first year is quite late, but I'm glad that I have chosen to join because I have learned a lot just from my 1st semester so I decided to continue the rest of my high school year in JROTC. The mission of JROTC is “ To motivate young people to become better citizens” which I think JROTC has taught me how to prepare for service, service to others is about helping out the community. How you become one better citizen is what JROTC helps you. JROTC encouraged cadets to achieve their own abilities and what they are capable of doing out of their best. Also JROTC is not all about learning out from the book, we all work as a team, we communicate, and we work together as a squad, platoon and company become one teamwork.
Moving on to my sophomore year, I went to three summer camps JROTC related. Two from school and another out of state camp. I went to JCLC an enlisted/fun camp and I learned how to repeal and how to brainstorm with a team in order to finish the task at hand. I also learned how to take charge of a platoon
During our first few weeks at WOBC we continued to get acclimated with the new surroundings of Fort Sill and continued to get accustomed to the transition from being enlisted to the officer branch. We in processed with the 1-30th FA Battalion which was simple and painless but the skill level or knowledge base to answer questions in
Firearm stoppage is one of the biggest problems I see in the military along with operator error. It can throw you off when you are shooting than all the sudden something went wrong and now you have to fix the jam.

The gritty sand and dirt swirled around me and into my mouth as I crunched through the dry Idaho desert. It was a slightly breezy day, and the wind played with my messy ponytail. I felt excitement and anxiousness as I walked toward the old timey gallows. Beyond the gallows was a hotel, a jail, and some other buildings I couldn’t identify. My dad led the way as we moved from the parking area to the shooters. They all looked as if they had jumped straight out of an old western book. Each had a belt with some shotgun shells and two pistols. Even though they all seemed to be around sixty—or older—they had a youthful glow and greeted us warmly. It was then that I knew I had found a passion, something worth hard work and perseverance.
I remember a kid in the back behind Trevor that actually passed out because the drill sergeants where yelling at him. After they got done yelling at us and separating us by our military occupational specialty. They took us inside the building and made us start to fill out stacks on stacks of papers regarding where we came from and

Throughout my childhood and adolescent years, I always had a dream of joining the military. Though it was a choice, I still did not have any inside information of what it would be like, and the requirements and specifics of the Army. It wasn't until 2005 when I decided to join the United States Army that all my concerns and questions were answered by a recruit; and I was guided through the whole process to enter and prep for the Army. If it was not for the confidences and motivation of my recruiter back in 2005, I might have not made my leap and probably would not be in this uniform today.
First and foremost, being in the United States Marine Corps for over 22 years I have learned a lot from experience. I learned just like in the military, in my civilian job now I am always on duty. Importantly there are set hours of work, the work can still venture into your personal life. My time in the Marine Corps I made sure my uniform was squared away at all times, now in the civilian profession I got to work in business casual. I make sure that my shirt and trouser are creased in a military manner along with my tie. I am in the understanding that in order to be very effective, civilians and Marine know one thing “they are always on the job”. During my tenure in the Marine Corps, the motto was always mission accomplishment. Now, hearing suggestions such as “Not my task” or “I did not
