One response that stuck out to me was the FMF Corpsman by Barbara Bulter, 58. She tells us how her making a decision of going into the military changed her into a better person. Barbara tells us how she felt like her life was going nowhere and how she partied all the time, till one day she came to conclusion she needs to change her actions. She joined the Navy at the age of 28. She never knew how much it would change her as a person. She tells us, " I knew I had to do my best or I would be out and back in Jersey where I started, and I did not want to go back." (Callings 166) Her dedication and passion is what made her into one if the first woman to go into the Male only Marine Fleet Course. She says how that was the best thing she could have ever done and how its made her into the person she is today.
Seeing Barbaras positive outlook on a situation that could easily persuade her to look another way. How I connect this to myself is seeing how much personality and passion she puts toward all the hard work she has to do. This next semester I'm leaving for Air Force basic training, and reading this article made me feel a lot more confident with myself and reminding me how to look at tough situations as if they are going to help me succeed.
I did my best research over Dawn Masts the Ink Removal Specialist. Dawn was someone who made her most darkest moments into a career of helping and healing others. She removes tattoos, which in my research I found out is a more common job then I thought. This job can be located at any laser removal treatment area near you. This job can make from about 29,050-58,880 salary pay, pushing right below average. A single treatment itself can cost from 200 to 500 dollars depending on the size of the tattoo.
