Sergeant First Class Fredrick Shinlever

The reasons why I joined the Army was because I wanted to get out of the environment that I was in.

My name is Sergeant First Class Fredrick Shinlever; from Indianapolis, Indiana. I'm stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas in Alpha Company 135. I'm platoon sergeant for first platoon. The reasons why I joined the Army was because I wanted to get out of the environment that I was in. I joined right out f high school at 18. And I wanted to be a part of something bigger.
Since I've been in the Army, I've had a lot of good experiences. I think the biggest experience for me is being around everybody from pretty much all over the world.
Serving with them, it's a big brotherhood. For me that's the biggest thing why I joined the Army and why I'm still in it, because I love being around Soldiers.
