    Figured I would say hello and tell a little bit about myself. I am 25 years old, have been in the United States Army for two years now, and am currently deployed in Afghanistan. Wanted a place to chat about politics, and just anything, life, movies, etc. Needed something to help pass the time in this sandbox, and this looks like a nice community. I look forward to getting to know you all.

    - Erik

    I was def. not forced, I volunteered, because I wanted to serve my country. My family has a long line of veterans going back to the Revolutionary War itself, was just my time. I havent regretted it either, best decision I ever made, helped me grow up, learn who I am, set myself up for a life of success, all while helping out my country.

    Thanks for the welcome everyone!
