I'm 23 years old and I

I'm 23 years old and I thought I was a patriot when I enlisted in the corps 6 years ago. I am so happy to learn that it was all a lie. I now know that my patriotism was synthetic while my commradery was genuin. The military appealed to me because despite all the bs that we got put through, we were in the shit together.

Now that I have both commradery and true patriotism in my fuel tank, I'm in the shit for the long run. I've never been more inspired. THIS is the feeling that was missing all along.
