Private Ethan Faxon, I'm from Manchester, Vermont and I'm going to be answering a question from Chloe from Wyoming. She asked; "You could pick from any branch of the military, why the Army?"

My father's in the United States Marine Corps. Everyone believed or figured I'd go to the Marines but instead I chose the Army. Why I chose the Army is because the Marines couldn't guarantee me my job. I'm here at basic for military police officer and that's what I really want to do. And the Army guaranteed me military police officer with more benefits.
