Thanks to everyone that entered the Why I Want to Join the Army! contest! This is our first contest and everyone on staff here at Army.com was pleased with the large amount of entries and the compelling reasons mentioned in most of the contest entries.
The five winners of copies of Master the ASVAB are:
Nestor J Molina-Rosado
Nestor's entry was a favorite of all of the judges, so I'm going to show his reason for why we wants to join the US Army:
"I left high school to start working when my dad was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. In that moment, join the army was one of my goals. I worked hard next to my father to keep my family together. I spent the hardest years in my life taking care of my father, and watching his health get
worse. Since I had the opportunity of get back college, I have been working hard to get it. I finished my high school in 2007 at the same time that I was finishing my technical degree in Drafting with ACad. Sixteen month ago he was diagnosed with cancer and I left everything in Puerto Rico to spend his last year with him. I enrolled college to learn English, which I finished in one year, and finish my degree. He was a veteran from Vietnam War, and that is my biggest influence and proud. Now I am alone, so I think is time to get back to what I was looking for."
Congratulations to all of our winners!
