Default I think I know what I want to do when I grow up.

I am about to turn 31, I have been married for 10 years as of last month, I have three kids, I have been in the army for 9 years and been combat deployed for over 3 of them. I have lived on both coasts, mid west and the south and I think I am just starting to learn what I want to do with my life....I am still very confused about a lot....but I am considering getting a degree in social work...I am more comfortable toting beanie babies over here than bullets....I never feel as good as when I am making a differiance in the lives of other people....I am often saddened, angry and worried about humanity....I want to change the world....my plan.....well....its a work in progress but I figure if I aim for the moon maybe I will at least hit the tops of the trees....I have no idea why I decided to type this here.....just tired of surfing the net for jobs that make a differance.....I am SO glad this deployment is almost at an end....it has been intresting, quite a learning experiance (how many people can say they have been to a wedding in an Afghanistan village?) But I need to move on......well thanks for letting me waste your time :P

I hear you man. I'm in the same boat. Still trying to figure out what I want to do when I grow up. I feel like the jack of all trades, master of none.

Grow up? Why on earth would you want to do that!

I hear you though. I'm about to re-enlist though

Growing old is manditory, growing up is optional.


Prime example here.

Thank you for your service.

Social work is an admirable cause. Just make sure that it meets your salary expectations. You can always volunteer on the weekends

I'm in the guard going on my first deployment in a couple months. I'm also testing right now to become a cop. I hear you loud and clear on wanting to make a difference.

Thank you for caring about people and thank you again for serving.

Actualy, I will be going to Fort Bragg, NC when I get back, then have to make a trip to Iowa to pick up the wife and kids. I was in the process of changing posts from washington to NC when I got deployed....on a side note, drove the SSEi from washington state to iowa then on to NC with a return trip to Iowa before leaving the states....cars were ment to be driven...
