it's all coming together

So after about a year of going back and forth with myself I have finally enlisted in the US Army. I could not be more proud and happy about this huge decision. I am about to graduate in December then I ship in April. My MOS just opened for woman back in June so I am one of the first to enlist as it. I am going to be a 12b Combat Engineer. So basically I have a lot riding on me. If I am unable to make it throught my OSUT then I would be a failure. But one thing is for sure, I will never be a failure. I am excited to go out and be one of the first woman to prove that I am able to compete in a mans world. I am excited for this new chapter in my life. Beyond excited. A lot has happened the past two years and I truly believe that everything that has happened has lead me here and I know this is where I am supposed to be. For once I feel no anger, hurt, or pain. I let go of it all. I am about to leave here with nothing holding me back. For the first time i am truly happy with where I am at in my life and I cannot be more proud of the person I am turning out to be.

    I thought about being an MP when I first was deciding on whether or not to enlist. What is your husbands MOS?
