I am a retired United States Marine who had my career cut short due to a spinal injury. Since last year I have started a new career in the same line of work on a military base, and love working with Marines still. I am a mom to an 8 year old who is my world. I am going back to school this coming spring and am eager to learn as much as possible. I am on this site to increase my vocabulary not just for school but for communications at my work as well.
