When I think about my time in the military, the first thing that comes to mind is loyalty. Those I served with are people I would do anything for, even to this day. In the Marine Corps, we treat each other as family and watch out for one another both in combat and non-combat environments.
Serving in the military provided an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. Whether they were my comrades in arms or the local population, I learned the importance an individual and a team can make by advocating for others with a little perseverance. I learned to push myself beyond my comfort zone both professionally and personally in a variety of different settings.
I've been taught the importance of leadership, teamwork, the ability to operate in high-tempo environments and be adaptable to change.
