Be Ambitious

When I left for the military, I was afraid of two outcomes.  The first fear was the most familiar to me, the fear of what life would be like if I failed.  I remember wondering, what happens if I hate being a soldier and it's not what I thought it would be?  Leading up to the day I left for the Army, I had nothing to show for myself.  I had failed at nearly everything … Continue reading Be Ambitious
