When I was ten years old, my old man died. I loved my dad more than anything and his death, combined with some other unfortunate…incidents…I just lost it, man. What’s “it” you ask? My faith. My love. My compassion. I completely shut myself off from the world, wouldn’t let anyone in or any feelings out. Before long, my mother simply couldn’t take it anymore and she kicked me out to fend for myself. Can you imagine that? Sixteen years young, and I was out on the streets with nothing but my car, an old rusty hunting rifle, and my dog, my trusty little man Aries. Luck finally decided it had shit on me enough, and I found a job fairly quickly, a minimum wage custodial affair, and an apartment soon followed. Life went on like this for two more years, and I finally decided that I was going to do something with myself, that I wasn’t going to be a pathetic nobody forever. I decided that the only way to accomplish that was to get an education, but on my meager wage there was no way in hell I could afford tuition costs. I spent some time at the public library, browsing the internet looking for some help, maybe a scholarship program, when I stumbled upon a military recruitment website. The words resonated in my mind like nothing had before: Brotherhood, belonging, a place to truly call home. It wasn’t long and my keen eyes, a long with a healthy dose of hard work and luck, landed me in the sniper training program. On graduation day, I was given my callsign, “Ghost”, and it was quite honestly the best day of my life. Now I’m twenty-six and have a tour under my belt, along with hundreds and hundreds of hours of training, and I couldn’t be happier.
