I am proud to be a part of this new group for veterans, the same as I was proud to serve this great country. An excellent idea from those fine folks at Jobcase. I would like to introduce myself as a veteran of the US Army. I served from 1982-1986. I was a young man and my mother took me to the recruiter's office on my seventeenth birthday, like was planned would happen throughout my youth. My plan was to join the US Air Force and fly fighter jets, but as I sat across the desk from the recruiter, my pilot plans were altered as the first question he asked me was, "Did you bring your high school diploma with you?" I looked at my mom through my afro bangs and replied, "I don't have one of those." My head was down and my thoughts of my late father as I stepped from the US Air Force recruiting office into the hallway and looked up. Placards above the doors going down the hall read: Navy.. Army.. and Marines.. Remembering what my father, a US Marine who had served two tours in Vietnam, had said a few years earlier, "Don't join the Marines, boy. Join one of the other branches and learn how to do something you can use when you become a civilian again." It was between the Navy and Army; I had to pick one because I was determined to join up with America's Military that day. It didn't take long for me to decide as I had no fondness of being out at sea on a boat and something happening and finding myself trying to swim back to a chunk of land I couldn't see. Two weeks later I boarded a Greyhound bus in Fort Wayne, Indiana, for Fort Leonardwood, Missouri in a leather cowboy hat and a precision shaped afro. That's my Join the Service story. I hope to meet many other veterans here and hear each of your stories as well. I'm sure, just like me, each of you have many stories from memories. I appreciate every one of you for your dedication and sacrifice for this great country. I hope to be of assistance to all who come here in search of a better job or a job period. I will do all I can to help.… #veteran #army #marines #navy #air force #america
