Reasons Why

"While others have excuses,
I have my reasons why" ~Nickel Creek

Throughout next few weeks, I'll be posting my reasons for wanting to join the Navy.  Since I tend to be a long-winded female, I'll just post one reason at a time, so that I can discuss it in detail - I've never claimed to be a simple person!  :P  At the end of each one I'm going to ask you questions, and I would REALLY, REALLY love it if I could hear from you - your own reasons, your own experiences...  Maybe your reasons for joining didn't turn out the way you hoped?  Or maybe you discovered new reasons once you joined that excite you and make you glad you did?  I want to go into this *HUGE* committment with eyes wide open!
