Why did you enlist?
Members of the armed forces are regularly presented with this particular question — and some are now speaking out. Using the popular smartphone application Whisper, many soldiers have turned to the social network to explain to others why they chose to join the military.
Whisper guarantees its users absolute privacy and, as a result, some of the confessions are raw and powerful.
1. Fight for Country
2. Preserve Freedom
3. To Serve
4. Make a Difference
5. Protect Family
6. Conquer Fears
7. Save Lives
8. For Country, Despite What Others Think
In this "whisper," a soldier not only reveals why she joined the armed forces, but claims people "hate" on her for serving in the U.S. Army.
9. Help With Natural Disasters
