I couldn’t believe I could push myself and do so much in the army. In the morning you can go for a loaded march, running for miles in the mud, hills, and streams, then in the afternoon you learn about automatic grenade launchers, armoured vehicles or how to search cars for hidden weapon. The best thing is when I wake up each morning I don’t feel like I am going to work.
