Former Cudahy Student turned American Soldier. Just here to share my experiences.
When it comes to being in the Army, you are no longer on your own time. It's the Army's time now and you have to be there when they say...even if they are going to make another hour or two.
When you graduate from high school, your first thought is "Thank god I'm done with that place." But as you're hugging your friends and getting congratulated by family, you don't realize that this is the start of a completely new page in your life, becoming a stranger to the new places you'll go. Everyone goes a different way, whether it be college, a job or my choice, the military.
