At 15, most of Jason’s friends had dropped out of school. At 17, Jason was thinking about dropping out, too. He found himself sitting in school suspension in October of his senior year of high school for skipping too many days of school. He plotted his escape by telling the teacher he wanted to check out the colleges who were recruiting students in the gymnasium that day. Jason wasn’t interested in college.

They invited him to come down to the office and take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery to determine what he would be suited for in the military. The recruiter showed Jason his test results, handed him three pages and said, “Hypothetically speaking, if you could pick any of these jobs, what would you pick?” It was hypothetical, right? So Jason chose infantry.
