    Green to Greenery!

    Hey y'all!
    My friend recommended me to this site. For those that know buddhistsoldier88 thats me and hi! I'm a soldier, a proud Buddhist, a son grieving for the loss of his mother who died too early (45), a loving fiance, and a great friend to many. I have always loved nature and how diverse evolution is and for those who cant see it in these plants are truly blind. (love the smilies) I'm 18 and live in Rock Island IL. I love to laugh and have fun. I also practice Martial Arts so those of you who do too please contact me i would love to discuss! : Any other questions, please DONT hesitate to ask!!

    Welcome. I can't say I've ever heard of a Buddhist soldier before.

    Forgot to mention that there is more to being a soldier than killing. Transportation, cook, etc. I'm a Mental Health Specialist or just a fancy title for psychiatrist. I havent left for any any training yet. Ship out 12-06-2008. (thats june 12 if i did that right).

    .... a Psychiatrist at the age of 18? That's extremely impressive!

    Well like I said i HAVENT left for training. Thats in june. And basic takes nine weeks. THEN ('round september) ill be in Ft. Sam Houston, TX for a long while.... 22weeks is what the Army says. I looked it up, they say its more of an assisstant to a psychiatrist, but I'll be working with ANYONE who has mental health problems. and I'll be 19 when I ship out for basic. Then soon after I'll be 20 (12-13 is my bday). Where from there i dunno. Guess i wait til i get my orders.
