It goes without question that there are endless possibilities out there for an individual to pursue, and with those endless possibilities there are even more paths one must take to achieve them. For me however, I find the answer clear as the night sky, something that has been inside me, driving me from day one. If I could earn a living doing what I loved the absolute most, I would most easily return to the United States Marine Corps as an Officer, and in that I would like to believe my noble service would change the world for the better day by day. My steps are simple, but yet to perform them highly complex. First, I must finish my college degree, which as I said, sounds simple enough on paper. Then I must get a stack of waivers signed, due to my prior service, having to waive disabilities, and waive this and this, and I must prove I’m fit for service. Then comes the worst part, the wait. Anywhere from six months to two years. Finally I must complete my training, which I’m sure it’s reputation proceeds itself as the hardest in the world both physically and mentally. Provide I have done that, I will have become an Officer of Marines, my greatest life goal!
