US Army Ranger

 I want to be a US Army Ranger. I have chosen this career
because of its stability and its challenge. I feel that the
rigorous training and high paced job function will provide me
with the challenge and excitement I search for in life. Also, its

and insurance. This career choice gives my family a chance
to go to college as well.
