No offense to the people that did but
One thing that really Erks me are the people that all enlisted just cause of 9/11. Shit I enlisted cause I wanted to serve my country out of my heart not for a disaster. I was on the USkearsarge a part of the 24meu when 9/11 was happening. Talk about shitting bricks. We left port in Croatia and stood by at red alert incase they wanted to send us in right away.
We were watching the TVs in disbelief.
What is wrong with 9/11 being the deciding factor to join the military? When 9/11 happened I was 18 and was torn as to what I wanted to do. The marines was on my list but I wasn't sure. 9/11 was the straw that broke the camels back for me and made up my mind for me. Well that is until they said no because of my back and I went the direction that I am now. It wasn't the only reason it was just enough to push me over the line.
