I would like to start by saying thank you for your courage, commitment and bravery. The sacrifices that you have made for our country is greatly appreciated and honorable. I admire you and your service and my goal is to enter into the military to serve our Nation.
I am currently an 18-year-old high school senior in Hartland, Wisconsin. I am physically fit and have the goal of enrolling into the Marines after graduating early. Only a handful of people have the courage to step up and serve this beloved country. You are one of them and a hero who is looked up too. I am glad you came back alive to share your experiences. By serving, you have made a difference in making our country safer. Your protection has allowed our families to be free including our future generations. I come from a military born family and we are honored to thank you for serving. My uncles, five cousins, and both of my grandpas have served or in the service as I write this letter to you.
I want to join the Marines because I want to protect this beautiful country. Maybe you had the same reason to join. No matter what you will still be a hero to this country and will never be forgotten. I would enjoy hearing your story and hearing any advice you might have for a future Marine.
