I know people join because family members present and past were in and it is a family tradition, and after 9/11 serving our country was a popular reason, but what are the off the wall reasons?

For instance - I failed out of college right out of high school, worked odd jobs for a year and was given an ultimatum by my dad - work construction with him, or go back to school. I went to buy sneakers instead, and ended up trying to introduce myself to an attractive young lady that ducked into the AF recruiters office before I had a chance to say hello. That was a Wednesday, and I signed up on Friday of that same week because of her walking into that office.

It all worked out and after six years as a TACP, there isn't a thing I can complain about...

So - what are the reasons?

I heard one of the people in my unit from 2/17 CAV, 101 ABN, say that he had been waiting his entire life to serve. His dad was with the 101st...grandpa was in the 101st...great-grandpa was in 1 ID. That's all I can remember, but it kept going.......
