"I'm an American Service member."

To me, they are powerful words, backed by a legacy of prestige and honor. Loyalty and commitment. Sacrifice and esperit de corps. It says that you are willing to lay down your life for another human being. It says that you are willing to help those who are in need. It says that you are a part of a greater thing than yourself. And lastly, it says that you are part of the largest family in the United States.

Mean I am willing to lay down my life for the country, but will make the other side give up his life for his country.

I joined initially for college money but that took a back seat real quick during basic. I love serving my country and being apart of something bigger than myself. Just hope my potential isn't squandered in the reserves.

to me it means that I chose to sacrifice and fight for this nation whether its enemies foreign or domestic.
