Still Ticking After 27 Years of Service
27 years ago I entered the Army on what was supposed to be a 3 year enlistment and I am still serving today. Though there have been ups and downs, I generally wake up every morning FIRED UP to be a member of the Army Team. I decided to celebrate the anniversary of my 27th year of service by working out with cadets and faculty members at West Point. It was a challenging workout and as I reflected back on the past 27 years I realized that as I grew and developed as a leader, so did my love for physical fitness. Through physical fitness individuals learn how to push themselves and overcome challenges.
After 27 years my body bears the scars of war but I make the most of every morning.
