Child Immigrant, Grown Defender of America

The image of a child immigrant, who grew up to serve in the U.S. military is a bit cliche these days, especially after more than a decade of conflict. However, there is nothing cliche about an immigrant wanting to defend his adopted nation and his fellow Americans (both fellow immigrants and native citizens). Many of us, who have been given great opportunities by this great (even if flawed) nation, choose to defend it not out of all it has given to us but more out of our love for the grand ideals it stands for.
