I joined the Marines to be an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C serviceman.

I joined the Marines because I wanted to make my Mom proud, and he was a Marine, and he fought in the Middle East.

I wanted to follow in his footprints and be a Marine, then when I turned eighteen, I joined the Marines.

I didn’t know what I wanted to do when I joined, but I had to figure that out by the time I finished boot camp, then the only thing they had open that I was even remotely interested in was Heating, Ventilation, and A/C. They needed people to install Heating, Ventilation, and A/C into huts in the Middle East. I could understand needing a/c because my Mom told me it was the desert. It got extremely tepid and without a/c it was strenuous to breathe. I didn’t know it got chilly at evening, and some guys walked around in parkas at evening, because of how low the hot and cold temperatures got. I told my Mom while in a video chat that I was an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C serviceman, and wondered why I needed to know all this stuff. He laughed and told me to wait until winter. I would know why it was necessary to have both heating and a/c. I thanked him for the encouragement, but I wished he hadn’t been so fair about the weather. He said it was even more daunting when the wind storms hit, especially if you weren’t in a hut, but you soon learned to love what little Heating, Ventilation, and A/C you had if you were lucky to have it. He also told me it was good I had chosen something that would provide me a opportunity at a work when I got out of the Marines.
