Was it to travel the world, it was a secure career, educational reasons?

What do you think was the main reason he/she joined the military?

To serve his country, because that's the kind of man my dh is.  Everything else is secondary.

My husband joined because he didn't want to go to college anymore and he's from a military family. I had joined because I was working three jobs to afford to go to college but yet, I couldn't because I had no time lol. I also wanted to travel but that didn't happen. They ended up just sending me right back home and that's where we've been the entire time lol. Thankfully, we are getting orders soon.

There are people that will tell you that you can't do it. They will even try to hold you back. However, it only means THEY can't do it. You can do anything you set your mind to and are willing to work hard to get.

My dh joined because he needed to take care of our family and he had always wanted to be in the military.

My son joined the AF because he didn't want to go to college and he wanted to travel.

 It's all he has ever wanted to do since he was 5 years old.

 Both my boys joined to serve there country.  Both there father's where in the military.  My 2nd husband loved the military and talked very highly of it to my boys.   I think this helped them want to join.
