Hello everyone. I live in Illinois, I currently have my eyes set on South Carolina. I'm interested in attending The Citadel as part of the class of 2014. Or ROTC at another college. This is why I am here. I'm a Junior in High School now, only Junior year is going to be slipping into Senior year within the next few weeks. It has always been my childhood dream to be an Officer in the Army. It is what I always wanted to do. Most people I know don't think I'm the type. I have been pretty much straying from it because I always thought I just wasn't the type. As I'm at the time where I have to make decisions for my life, I am going to do just that. Others don't think I am a match, but those are other people, not myself. I will be researching my dream now and hope this forum can help. I guess I will just ask this question here. Is there a certain type of person fit for the military? What qualities does someone usually have to make them fit for such a career and college? Goose.
