have recently decided to join the Army after talking to a friend from high school who is now a recruiter. He told me I qualified for a chance at Special Forces, which came as a shock because my intent was never to be professional soldier but to increase my education while I served my country. After speaking with veterans and seriously reflecting I think this is what I want to do with my life. My question to those who are professional soldiers is knowing that you must leave behind all who you love, what you love, everything you know, and that you might never see any of it again and if you do it won't ever be the same, neither will you. Is all the sacrifice worth it? When you look back at your life in twenty years and have to look in the mirror, in your heart is it worth it?
