Hero of the Day 11/21/14 - Colten Honeycutt
Deployed to Kuwait
Tell us a little about yourself-
I grew up in Mansfield, Texas. I graduated from Mansfield High School in 2011. I love hunting, fishing, playing guitar, tattoos, and Texas/Red dirt country music. I've been in the Army for going on 5 years now, and I'm currently deployed to Kuwait in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.
Which branch of service are you in?
Why did you choose to serve?
I chose to serve because I love my country, my friends, and my family. That's a cliche, but it's the truth. I wanted to do something that would benefit more than just myself, and the military was something I had wanted to do since I was a kid.
What are your plans for when you are out of service/What do you do now?
I'm not really sure that I will leave the military. Sure, I'll retire eventually, but I don't currently have any plans to leave the service.
