Infantry Army

Claudio Abarca Period 1

My Career

This career that I am willing to go through will take a lot of dedication and will. Starting this career and ending it with my life will make me proud. Hopefully through out this career I would end up as a General. Being in the Infantry army is what I have been thinking about for two years and I know the consequences if I do my job bad or if I make a mistake. Making a mistake is unacceptable and being in the Army will make me be aware of my mistakes. The Infantry army is my dream.
