Hello everyone. I am a 23 year old graduate of Illinois State University with a B.S. in Criminal Justice Sciences. Since my graduation I have secured an 18x contract with the Army and look forward to starting my career. I am glad that I discovered this site and its members’ vast amount of knowledge. Any kind of insight or information that is shared will be invaluable to me.

Welcome to the site.

Why did you decide to go 18x vs. the officer route?

Thank you all for welcoming me to the site.

CDG,

I chose to enlist rather than become an officer because I believe that the best leaders are those who have been in the shoes of the men and women they lead. Education is important, but nothing can replace experience. Right now I am focused on getting into SF and I can decide later if I want to try to become commissioned or not. SF has been a dream of mine for a long time and I have come close to enlisting for several years. I am, however, very thankful that my parents encouraged me to finish my degree first.
