Parick Dunlap is a senior at Hudson High School. After graduation he may join the military. "First I just want to get out of school, but as soon as I do the military is my first option. It will give me a chance to see the world, fight for my country and get me a way into college," says Patrick Dunlap.
It's not a guarantee but Army Recruiter Raul Narvaez says joining the military could mean Patrick would have to fight in the Iraq war to help fulfill President Bush's request for more troops. "It's possible for anybody in any military service to get deployed. It's important to know what you are going to do if that time comes." says Staff Sgt. Raul Narvaez. "If I go to war that's what God's got planned for me, that's what America's got planned for me to fight for my friends, my family, my freedom and that's what I'm going to do," says Dunlap.
