What was your, or what would have hypothetically been, your reasoning for joining the military?

In light of a couple of recent comments out there on a forum, let's here from the community, eh?

    I joined to serve, I didn't have anything else I wanted to do beyond the service to my country. Family and friends kept trying to talk down to me saying I couldn't do it or crap like that, I proved all their dumb-butts wrong. I did it simply because I can, and nobody was going to stop me. I didn't do it for college, I don't give a crap about college, besides, trades are more of a guaranteed job these days. I could use benefits but I didn't get disabled and I am not applying for free money I didn't earn from my own two hands. I don't need a free house loan as I will likely never settle in any one place. I served the one contract and went back to civ-life with my DD-214, I am planning on reenlisting as a prior-service as I am still RE-1A, ready and capable. Semper Fidelis, Marines. A vet...

      • I'll start it off by saying there are no wrong answers here. Not one person is alike, and people have joined or at least have thought about joining for lots of reasons. My reason(s): get away from home, travel, money for college, felt like I didn't have a purpose or direction, the path I was on was not a pretty one, wanted to shoot "targets", and I had a death wish (didn't think I'd come back alive and lowkey didn't want to, but here I am) [quote]Semper Fi [/quote] -dis[b]grunt[/b]led vet [b];IGY6[/b]
