“When I’m done with the Army, that’s it, I’m not a child any more, I’m an adult. I have bills, I have to worry about a place to live, how to eat, where to work, where to go to school. It’s really stressful.”

She may end up staying a little longer in the Army, working on a base nearby. The skills required will be lower than her current rank as dog handler, but she’d be commanding a team of canine guards.

“The Army has taught me that there’s no such thing as giving up,” she says. “There’s no such thing as I’m tired, so I’m not going to do it.”
