How Mitchell Messer Served and Sacrificed for Our Nation

 

Essay Written by Arianna Reiley of West Creek Middle School
As part of the Clarksville Kiwanis Club’s Memories of Service and Sacrifice Project’s “Interview a Veteran Contest”

Soldiers pledge their lives joining the military, knowing that they can expect the worst at war. They join to serve their country to their fullest extent. They join, knowing that they will do their country proud. One of those soldiers includes Mitchell Messer, an E6/Staff Sergeant in the U.S Army. Everybody knows the risks of joining the military. These risks include missing your family, getting hurt, or even worse, seeing your friends die around you. These are all risks that Mitch has taken.

When asked about why he joined the military, he had an elaborate answer. “I felt that it was my duty as an American.” Well, what does he mean? “Our ancestors founded this country on certain beliefs, and I felt it was my duty to share in the responsibility to uphold those standards and beliefs,” he answered.

Arianna Reiley reads from her essay at the “Interview A Veteran” Essay Contest Winners program Tuesday, November 8th 2011.

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Early one morning in 2007, journalist Willy Stern arrived at a palace formerly owned by Saddam Hussein to go on a friendly jog with retired Gen. David Petraeus, then-commander of U.S. troops in Iraq.

The general’s public affairs officer referred to it as a social run – three miles at a slow pace. Nothing to worry about, right?

“I can do that,” Stern recalled. “So I’m standing outside the palace at 0600 hours and 17 Olympic athletes walk out. I started to realize, hey, I’m being hazed.”
