Forward Operating Base Fenty, Afghanistan – When it comes to joining the military, the decision can be easier for some than it is for others.

For U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Christopher Dollar, a native to Yakima, WA, the decision wasn’t too hard at all.

“I joined the Army because I wanted to get out of the town that I was in, and, you know, I was trying to look at something for a career to kind of help me advance my education,” Dollar said.
