On this day, September 11th 2011, 10 years after the attacks on the US, I can proudly say that I am happy to serve and proud to serve my country. I joined the US Army before the attacks 10 year ago but that doesn't change the fact that I have dedicated 15 years of my life to protecting this country's freedom. I have inspired my younger brother to join the Army and even my youngest brother to join if he can. I love my country, I love my job. I don't ask that you respect me, I only ask that you respect what I do.
