“What’s up bro? What grade are you?” A man dressed up in a military uniform approached Steven, waiting for his ride, one day. “Oh no!” Steven thought to himself. He was about to graduate in a month and about to go to one of the top schools in Hawaii, Hawaii Pacific University (H.P.U.), to pursue his degree in business administrations. He wanted nothing to do with the military. What he wanted was to graduate, go to college, and get a good job, do what normal people do. What he did not know was that this would be just the beginning of what would make his military career and how good of a life he would have from being in. Steven and the man, which he later found out was a recruiter, talked for several minutes and before Steven knew it, he had an appointment to meet with the recruiter at his office in town. The man left as Steven was picked up by his bus. When he got home, Steven talked to his parents about the recruiter he met and his appointment the following day. As far as both of his parents knew, they knew absolutely nothing about the military except for World War II and Vietnam. Still, Steven’s parents were supportive, to look at his options, and dropped him off at his appointment the following day. Continue...

All together Steven was amazed of what he did not know about the military The idea of moving base-to-base every few years did not appeal to him, yet the challenge of basic training, career benefits, and job selection did. "Oh, and here is a pay chart of what you would get paid," the recruiter handed Steven a chart with numbers and dollar signs all over it. Yes!"Then the recruiter talked about college. He would be thirty-eight years old and retired. "How"tms it going bro" the recruiter reached out with a welcoming handshake, "Steven right" The man seemed friendly enough, so Steven knew right away that this was not the bombing and shooting as he had portrayed it to be. With only a few hours of rest each night, he hung-in there, trying not to break down. A week later, Steven signed to join the Air Force. So many people wanted to become a part of the Air Force, he could not even begin his first day of his career until several months later because there were so many men and women which signed before him. You can get your degree without paying a cent. He had never seen anything like that in his small town, where each person was similar in cultural morays. Steven made many new friends that came from all over the country.
