If you could go back and talk to your younger self and change one thing you did in your military life, how long ago and what would it be? It could be one event, one day or even one duty assignment (if one was that bad). Share with us a little bit into your life and how you would make it better and maybe it will help someone else become better or not make a bad decision.

Korea isnt for everyone but I found it awesome. I didnt care for life down range and stuck to the gals in fellow units, but the shopping was awesome as well as the mission.

I answered a similar post a few months back, and the answer is still the same, I would have pursued my college degree much earlier in my career instead of waiting until a year before I retired to begin taking classes. I would have possibly been further along in my career than I was and also been better prepared for life after retirement from the Army as well.


I enjoyed most of my military assignments, as I have always learned and been mentored throughout my career, each assignment is what you make of it, good, bad, or indifferent, it is up to you to make the difference for you and your comrades.
