My name is Ksean Stuart. I’m 18 years of age an a high school senior in Jamaica NY 11433. I’m enlisted in the US Army as an 11X(infantryman). I leave for basic training at fort benning July 7th. I’ve been weight lifting and training on my own for about 2 years. I’ve also been training with the army Future soldier program/delayed entry. After doing this for some time I was given the task of being squad leader of the future soldiers in my recruiting station. I was recently awarded for my leadership and Promoted from E-1 to E-2. The military has been a dream of mine since I was a kid and I have family members in the military so it was almost a given and my street name is “Tuskegee airmen way” lol. I want to serve my country and maintain my family’s line of military service that dates back to Vietnam. I want to be an Airborne ranger and I don’t have a set date that I want to go to ranger school because I want to train until I’m ready mentally and physically. Hope that I can learn from the others in my area and it will be cool knowing that I’m not the only one with these dreams near me.
