I'm Private Tracy Re Ckart from Terra Alta , West Virginia; I have a question from Keith from Jacksonville, Florida; "I'm 20 and looking to join the Army to become a better person do you think this is good idea?"

Yes, it is. I'm 20 also. I joined the Army to be a better person. I've learned not to take things for granted such as time and sleep and just the simple basics of life. You learn to appreciate it more, and appreciate just, and respect yourself and gain self-confidence.
