Every year when I have my birthday, am exactly 1 year and 9 months older then I was before. I did not have a choice in who I am to become, neither did I have a choice in my gender, neither did I have any choice in my racial makeup. I am who I am and that is where the problem lies, I wish others would accept me for who I am and not what they see me as. All my life, I have had this Name and Number, it follows me wherever I go. I learned that in order to move forward, one has to crawl first and then walk among the masses. At the tender and greenhorn age of 17 1/2 yrs old, I had raised my hand to defend my country.&nbsp; To some, they might consider this a decision to cut the strings from mother.In all truthfulness, I once had a mother up until I was maybe 2 yrs old.<br /> <br /> I grew up way to fast for my age, I literally became a Man, overnight. When your sent off to War, to fight against another, you grow up to learn you had better survive so you could breath the next day. At the age of 19, I became a Leader of men, I had been promoted to the rank of Sargent, E-5. I must stress to everyone here that I did not join the military for the pay nor the benefits. I joined because it was my Calling !<br /> <br /> Life can never prepare you for the atrocity's of mankind! I have held a great many soldiers in my arms while they breath in there last breath of life. Some say that it's a weakness if a fellow man sheds tears for another, some even say if once you shed tears for your fellow man, then you have not become that which you yourself have caused.<br /> <br /> We all know that fighting Violence with Violence is not the right answer but if you fail to project the power to overcome that which you are facing with, You will become defeated !&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Furthermore,&nbsp; I am ME ! I have become more of a Human Being then I have ever dreamed of because of my life as a Monster that I was once part of. I support all of Humanity but none of Mankind !<br />
