Why do you want to be a soldier?

Standard

My answer to Why do you want to be a soldier?

Answer by Ken Larson:

I had finished 2 years of college and could not decide on a major course of study. In short, I did not know what I wished to do professionally.

I joined the military to pursue some options in that regard and because I would be drafted if I left school to do the same thing by going to work in civilian life.

I had the good fortune to have assignments in military intelligence, base development planning and weapons systems that allowed me to find out what I was good at and how to apply it.

I used those skills later after I left the military, but paid a price for the experience in PTSD and related depression.
