PFC Justin Smith


Oregon, Wisconsin Infantryma­n

Growing up, I always wanted to join the military. My parents were 100 percent on board. My whole family said it made them all proud.

Some people think that the military brainwashe­s people. But in reality, we’re all normal people with a different job that demands a little more. Basic was definitely the hardest part. Not so much physically but just being away from home. I was never really away from home by myself before.

I definitely see myself going somewhere else in the military. I also want to do college. Everyone gets married super early in the military. I don’t understand why, but I definitely see a family in the future. I want at least two kids. Hopefully, they’ll grow up to do something great.
