This is my introductory post! I really like this website and all the articles on the art of manliness, so I figured I'd join the forum and see whats up with everyone else who enjoys this website as much as I do. I'm looking forward to having many discussions and growing with you gentlemen, and ladies.
So to tell you a bit about myself. I am a 23 year old infantryman, born and raised a Texan but currently stationed at JBER, Alaska. I'm fortunate enough to be married to an amazing woman and beautiful little girl ( almost 2 years old) Enjoying life and slowly becoming a better man every day.
Welcome from another FNG and Thank you sir for your service to our great Country
My name is Victor and I am also new on here and about your age (22), not married yet but I do have an amazing woman in my life too. I'm currently studying Medieval History to become a scholar and university teacher. But I've also been developping physical and practical skills more thanks to AoM lately.
What about you? As an infrantryman, how does AoM help you become a better man?
AoM helps with all that for me too. I live 500 miles away from my family because of work and I also work at night pretty often. Definitely not the same as being stationned in Alaska, but distance is still distance, no matter how far you are, I guess.
Talking about Alaska, how is it up there? I've seen a documentary about life in Antarctica recently ("Antarctica, one year on ice" by Anthony Powell: strongly recommend it) but it's probably a lot different. Maybe it made you develop manly skills you did not have previously?
Sounds awesome! Did you have to pass a fitness test in order to be stationned there? I would be interested to know in what it consists.
