Civilian Life To Military Life
What Is The Hardest Part?

The liberties I had as a civilian are not the same as of the military, in regards to uniform wear every day, and customs and courtesies, but the military has great discipline structure that allows you to become very discipline with yourself, and helping me stay focused in this sport. I have become a better person also since joining the military, which makes me feel better about myself and helps me get along better with others.
