Sgt. Kristie Ennis, USMC

“I honestly miss deploying. I think that's something all of us feel when we get back from overseas, or get out of the military. It was simple in a lot of ways. There was no worrying about how I did my hair or what I was going to put on. You know what you're doing immediately. You know where you need to be, how you need to get there, and who you need to be looking out for. You protect your ship, your helicopter, the men around you. It's very simple. In some cases, it's kill or be killed and that's it. You just have to be so conscious of everything around you that you don't have to worry about everything that's going on back at home. My deployments were also very entertaining. I loved being over there and knowing I could help those that couldn't protect themselves. I was helping the boots on the ground. In a way, it's one of the most rewarding things you can say that you've done.”
