When he was 17 and a Junior in highschool he joined the army. "I was pretty scared for him because of what was going on in Iraq and those other countries at the time but it's what he wanted to do so I did my best to be supportive of him." (Villarreal, Esther.).
My brother graduated highschool in 2010 and was sent to boot camp in Fort Benning, Georgia that summer from July till October. After basic training he came back and was going to start college here at BV in January of 2011 but before he could start he got deployed.
