Some find it hard to understand why people WANT to join the Army. It takes a special person/special commitment and is not for everyone. I commend John for wanting to and also for those who know it is not for them.
As for UC - he no longer has UC - he is free of this DD. My husband wants to remind John that no matter what his "job" would be in the Army he would be an Infantryman first - you have to be able to go to battle!
