I told my father recently that I was considering OCS after college and naturally he asked me why. Such a simple question and I couldn't give a straight answer. I don't have a particular sense of patriotic duty, I don't think I would feel like I was actually liberating the oppressed...I'd be lying if I said the military didn't appeal to my sense of grandeur and that I wasn't seeking some sort of adventure, but theres something more than that. I just can't figure out what that something is. All my life there was something tugging inside me that wanted to join the military. My college career is winding down and the feeling still lingers. Being that I study international relations and alot of history, war, and tactics (and enjoy it), I guess that would only make sense. Any comments/words of advice would be appreciated. I have a buddy that enlisted in the Army over a year ago and I soak in every word he has to say. I just like to get as many different perspectives as I can. Thanks.
