I posted a question on Quora asking veterans if they learned any life lessons from the military. Specifically, I asked the following:
For veterans and active duty military, what are some important lessons you learned while serving?
The response was actually very interesting. I appreciated these veterans taking the time to share their experiences with us.
While I never had the privilege of serving myself, my wife and I both have family members and friends who served. I can’t imagine what being half a world away in the middle of a war zone is like. The closest thing I’ll ever come to witnessing something like that is on television or the movie screen.
Of course, that is nowhere near what it’s like. These brave men and women risk their lives for us on a daily basis. No matter what side of the political spectrum you fall, we all must respect that. We want them on that wall, we need them on that all. Sorry, couldn’t help myself!
With that brief intro, I wanted to provide with some of the best answers to the question on life lessons from the military. Veteran or not, I believe we can all benefit from what these brave souls have endured.
