This paper explains that, because of his family financial situation, the author could not afford college; therefore, he was excited when the army recruiter came to his high school. From the author's nervousness to the sergeant asking if the infantry is really the job for him, the author narrates his experience with interviewing the military representative. Having recently retired from active duty in the U. S. army, the paper relates that the author has never regretted his career choice.

From the Paper:

"He started the conversation with a question; "What do you want to know about the Army?" I had a million questions to ask Sergeant Isaacs and not wanting him to know how little I knew about the military and government service I looked at him and suddenly forgot all the questions I had rehearsed, so I went straight to the only thing I could think of which was about becoming an Infantryman. He looked at me as if I were a criminal, sizing me up with his eyes. I instantly got the feeling that I had said the wrong thing, one of those feelings you get as if you just opened your mouth and inserted foot."
