A Path with a Purpose

Keeper of Dreams

You will hurdle obstacles physically and mentally. You will learn skills that translate into civilian jobs and gain experience that can't be taught in a classroom. You will face challenges and learn to overcome them.

With your well-earned sense of pride and selflessness, people will look to you in the moment of need. You will rebuild the lives of friends and neighbors after a devastating disaster, or travel the globe to bring basic human needs to a third-world village. Your sense of purpose and impact on the world around you will never waver again.
