I'm Private Michael Raneo from Lavar, Florida I'm stationed here at Fort Benning, Georgia for basic training and Shelia from Puerto Rico asks; "What motives did you have to join the Army cause I really am interested in joining the Army?"

Well the one motive I did, I talked about it for a couple of years then I just manned up and just went to the recruiting office.

So that's basically when my life started is when I went into that recruiting office and signed that paper and said hey you're now in the Army good luck.
