On September 11, 2001, a plane hijacked by Iraqi terrorists crashed into New York City's World trade center, which burst into flames and collapsed, taking the lives of many Americans with it. Ryan Smithson, a student in Columbia High School in East Greenbush, New York heard the news, and wanted to help his country.
He did this by enlisting in the army. First, Smithson went to Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri. There, he and all other recruits finished all the basic army procedures, such as getting their uniforms, filling out paperwork, and medical testing.
At Fort Leonard Wood, the recruits went through a series of drills including push up, squat thrusts, and other military techniques. They also had to learn to use weapons. All these were taught by harsh Drill Seargents, who wouldn't hesitate to yell at the privates.
Before long, Smithson was deployed to Iraq. There, he met his platoon, the E.Q. platoon. He was to stay and fight in Iraq for a year, occasionally traveling to different towns.
On one mission in Iraq, Ryan Smithson and some other E.Q. platoon members met some young children in Iraq. The soldiers were so moved by their condition, that they willingly gave up their meals and beverages for the kids.
Finally, after a 1-year military tour of Iraq, Smithson was able to return home to his family. His time in Iraq left a major impression on him, and his fellow soldiers continued to inspire him.
