But I haven't figured it out yet, and I have no idea how to get there, but I've been in a very unique situation where I'm able to date men who are also in the military. So I'm lucky."
"The other part of my story that I really wanted to share is one of my first dates in high school, and I was on my way home when I met a guy at tattooed guys a local bar, and he was sitting there watching some television and he was wearing a uniform that was exactly like my uniform and the only difference is the uniform has an afro on it.

"He looked me up and down and said, 'well, I don't know, you're not wearing a uniform.' He just kept walking and I just kept thinking, 'how does a guy who is so uniform like him know about my life?' And it's really neat that he's just an ordinary guy who didn't know a lot about me. He just saw a white boy wearing a uniform and thought 'he's wearing the uniform, too!'

"So now I think there's something special about the uniform. The fact that it was a little awkward because the other guy wasn't really a fan of mine is a little part of what it all means."
"I think it's just part of who we are, and I think if you look into the people who wear the uniform, and you look at their life, it's a good way to reflect on who we are as Americans, and it's prison pen pals georgia just something to celebrate."
