My name is Private First Class Alley and I'm a Cavalry Scout in the United States Army. We go ahead of the frontline and gather information on enemy activity and personnel.
For a 21-year old guy I have a pretty darn important job.
We're the eyes and the ears of the Army as Cavalry Scouts. We overlook enemy activity and we do it all without being seen. Being part of that team, you're only as strong as your weakest link. I take care of my men.
I'm the frontline for the frontline.
Three years ago I was just getting out of high school. I definitely made the right decision by joining the Cavalry. You learn a lot of responsibilities. You're getting paid, and you're helping serve your country. Not too many people can do this job.
