I'm Proud To Be A Military Supporter

Why can't you accept that?

I'm Proud To Be A Military Supporter

What's my opinion on the military?

Well, I got reasons. There's so much. I'm a military supporter. Why can't you accept that?

Just maybe you can't accept I'm the military brat. Maybe you can't accept that I'm carrying on the tradition of the military. Maybe you can't accept the fact military has my number one priority.

Not everyone is college material. Nor military material. I wasn't college material, but I moved on to get my military dream. I'm happy to be a part of a family that's a good one. I'm happy to say that I'm finally getting the respect I should get. I followed each dream.

I know a lot of people in the military. My grandparents were in the military. My uncle was in the military. My cousin was also in the military. I'm hoping I can take their position and take over. Marines, Army-Air Force, Airforce, and such.

If you really knew me, I'm a troops supporter.

Marines.

Navy.

Army.

Air Force.

Reserves.

Coast Guard.

National Guard.

Each branch has a purpose of why I'm such a huge supporter.

Marines. My grandfather and my cousin were marines. Semper Fi.

Navy. I see their purpose watching "NCIS," if you knew that show, you'd get why I have that purpose.

Coast Guard. They rescue people from the oceans and so forth. That's bravery.

Army. My grandmother was a part of the Army Air Forces, which was known back then. She was a great person, I heard.

Air Force. My uncle and my grandmother were in the military. I'm glad I get to say I'm carrying the tradition of going into the Air Force. 💕 it's by all my favorite branch.

I could watch any movie with a military theme in it and still be fascinated by one thing. I'll do anything to make sure my troops have a safe flight or ride home. If you wanted to get someone back in your arms, what would you do? Be patient, they'll be back. I do believe that troops should have the right to leave if they wanted.

There's always something the military has taught me. That's respect, loyalty and bravery. Especially taking risks.

Lead me, follow me, or get the hell out of my way. — George S. Patton Jr., "Patton Principles"

That's me. I'm chasing my dreams. Either you follow me, lead me or I push you out of my way.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
