             Growing up, I was always scared of leaving home. I have so many memories there. From being a little child at the play areas to being a youthful grown-up at the films theater around the local area down the road. Being a preteen in the sideway Sunday school to being a teenager working at the area Applebee's. Not only did my neighborhood give me great memories but it gave me great friends to share those memories with as well. The older I got, the more I understood that I would have to leave someday. When I left home, I thought that everything would change. When in fact, the only thing that changed was me. .
             When I graduated high school, I began heading off to a junior college right outside of my neighborhood. I didn't have the cash to go to a huge school which did not trouble me on the grounds that it would have implied I would have needed to move away. A year and a half into going to school there, I came to realize that it would take me forever to earn my degree with the fact that I was only going part time because I had to work to pay for school. This is the thing that made me begin researching the Army.
             I had always heard of the great education benefits given to soldiers in the Army and that is what made me decide to join.
