I have long awaited an opportunity to fulfill my dream of becoming an elite soldier. I have been knocking on every door possible only to find them locked, or to have them opened and then quickly closed with a quick and resounding "NO." Today, after hours of phone calls, that wait was ended with a handshake and this short comment: "Congratulations Airmen, you just got your 18x."

My heart leaped, my fists clinched, my eyes teared up just a bit, and my hands made one very loud clap. All the waiting has ended, and I now have an opportunity to be among the best Men in the world.

I will earn my spot to fight by their side, and I will never fail them or myself. I WILL NOT QUIT.

My schooling is as follows:

11B Infantry, Airborne, and then SFAS/Q-Course and everything else involved with SF.

HOOAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
