HORU March 16, 2016

"I'm from Singapore, and before coming here to America, I was in the military for two years. I enlisted when I was 18 through a conscription of sorts. Every guy, when they reach a certain age, they are expected to serve. But I got injured during that time. It was during my vocational training, during a road march. Everyone had their packs on, full gear, and we were supposed to march 16 kilometers in the middle of the night. I fell that night and got caught in a crack with all of my gear. I just wasn't able to continue and that's all it took. It wasn't really a nice experience, so coming here to America and to Rutgers is a fresh start for me, and a new change to the way things are going."
