What about me? I am Russian immigrant, who had nothing to do but to play videogames and eat potato chips all day until one day for some reason I decided to stop by Army's recruiting office and sign up. I was offered position of Linguist and 20,000 dollars bonus from the start, but due to being 18 year old kid, who wanted to play war (and probably because I was resident alien) I chose to be 19D.
