SPC. Erica Hundley
Erica decided in her Jr. year at High School that she wanted to join some aspect of the military. She wanted to make a difference. This is what Erica wrote in her own words.
"Why did I do what I did? Its like something inside me was telling me to do it. Like I had no control over myself. I find myself doing things that normal Americans do not do. I find myself in new places and adventuring into new things that I have never done before. I see things that many people will never see, I do things that many people will never do even in their wildest dreams. I have tasted, smelled, and touched new things. It is such an amazing feeling. Am I glad that I did it? Yes. Am I excited that I did it? Yes. So what else lies ahead in my future? I have no idea and THAT is why I did it. I live my life to the fullest everyday and live for the moment that I am in. So for now I have found myself dedicated to the United States Army!"
Erica did her basic at Ft. Jackson, S.C., July - Sept.'05. From there she went to AIT at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland. She was at Camp Edgewood, Maryland, Sept. 05 - Jan.06. She came back home for about 8 days then flew off to South Korea, Feb. 9th 2006.
Erica is coming home again Feb. 6th, 2007 for a short 7 day visit before heading on down to Texas.
