Hi my name is Private Robert Tauteris I'm from Knox, Indiana I'm answering a question from Andrew from Wheatfield, Indiana his question is; "What made you decide to enlist in the U.S. Army instead of any other branches in the service like the Marines, Air Force, Navy or Coast Guard?"

My honest answer to that question is that my father is in the military and I wanted to follow in his footsteps.

It's a privilege to be able to know that on graduation I'll be able to shake my dads hand and he's going to say congratulations, because I'm a Soldier now.

I've dreamed of being a Soldier since I was a little child. The adventure that we get to have, being able to serve my country it's just something that really intrigues me and my interests; it's what I've always wanted.
