The United States Army has a long and glorious history. We have played our parts in most of the recent major conflicts that have taken the world by storm, from WWI and WWII to Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan, and even earlier wars like the Mexican-American War and our founding conflict, the Revolutionary War.
I was in the Army during the early and mid 90’s, and I was on the ground in Bosnia during the ethnic conflict there. I took a bullet in my shoulder during the fighting there, but mine was nowhere near the worst even in my squad. My big takeaway as part of the Army is that we don’t have it anywhere near the worst compared to others. We are skilled, well trained and equipped, and have awesome benefits compared to other countries. You can do a lot worse than enlisting in the US Army like we did.
