      Well I’ve seen the ranking system for all the tree branches of the military, and I found all of them interesting, and I’ve cherished the ambition of bing a military man right from my childhood, am not specifying either Air force, Navy or Army but any one GOD chooses for me will be very OK by me because I gave him the choice of making all decisions in my life. My only prayers now is this; O ALLAH you know what exactly will feet me, so pls make a choice for me in one of these branches of the military. All I want is to be a military man..

    31. If u rely want to join d military is very simple. D first thing is to acknowledge ur creator(God) with God all things are possible. If u are looking on to man claiming that u are looking onto God u are not qualified for His help (deceive urself). U have two eyes can u used one of d eye to look up and second eye to look down. God can never put you to shame.
