I joined the army last Thursday.
I ship out January 5th.
14 weeks of basic training then on to being stationed.
I will serve 4 years and 16 weeks in the infantry and then be placed on 4 years of reserve.
I will go in as a PFC - paygrade E3.
I will get a 19k cash bonus for joining paid off in equal amounts yearly.
I will get a GI bill for 38k.
And Uncle Sam will own me...
I don't know what to think.
