I was board.
My name is Jonathan an Officer in the Marine Corp and this is my story. I was so excited to be on that bus to the base in Guatemala. I had just landed and the bus was taking us to the barracks and then the mess hall. Is 5 o’clock in the morning we all are going to the Mess Hall for our equipment and then we go out to the training area. But before we go out to the training area we are going to supporting the marines that are flying the Harriers for the last time here at this base. They wish that they weren’t here right now because they want to go home and see there children or wives or girlfriend’s that haven’t answered there question. This is my starting of a new life all over again. I got this idea from my uncle how was I the Air Force for about 20-30 years. I lived with him for a long time but I think I know why my parents decided to send me to him. It was to fix the way I act around other people and to fix the fact that I was getting into to may fights. So one night my uncle was in the U.S. he dropped by and told me to say goodbye to my mom and dad. I said bye and walked of with him but I started thinking is this because of me or is this because of them? Anyway the meaning of this is I was taken from my parents when I was little. Some times I still think back about that but it doesn’t bother me much. Right now It is bugging me a lot due to my Uncle. He has been messing with me by telling me that they will come back someday and I really hate it!
Three weeks later
The night was cold and something larked outside the tent. It was the second week of survival training and my team was struggling to make it. I was the only one to be able to catch food to eat. I wish that I was out of here but if I quit I lose my spot in the Marines. If I was lucky I would get another chance to try out some new tactics on the way I build the stings that I need to keep from staring at death out here in the middle of the woods. One of my team mats has already been taken back to the main base because he I has become very sick. I was laying there under the stars waiting to get rescued, but because of him getting ill we have to stay out here a lot longer then the leader excepted to be out here. My Captain is a Corporal he has been in the Marines for…. Man I have Know clue how many years but any way. I have several friends one is Taylor, Taylor say hi “Hiiii.” There is three others and They are out on a scouting mission. For some strange reason I have been in stuck in the camp for so long that I am starting to lose my mind and the rest of the team is aloud to go out and hunt. I ask my caption to let me go out and hunt but he never lets me go. He says that he needs a person here at the camp. I think that he just wants me to stay here and let everybody ales have a chance to learn. Mainly I will get the awarded for this considering that I am the only one how is able to hunt, build the tents and other stuff. Some times I start out going to the bathroom…… Jonathan get your but over here and clean the stupid latrines. The reason why I am here is because of Honor. I am an American, fighting in the forces which guard my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense. And in the end I will be the last one standing and I will not fall because I am a army of one. But I can’t say that ‘cause I am apart of a team and my team will be the best.
