I’m far from being a role model but I find myself being in a position to do some good. I’ve made so many mistakes and I’ll probably make more in the future. I preach about love & compassion but at a moments notice I’m ready for war. I use profanity, I’m covered with tattoos, and once in a while my actions qualify as “misdemeanors”. I relate to veterans and people from rough upbringings because I’ve experienced what they’ve experienced. The way I see it, I’m not going to stand around and wait for someone to do something. My name is Angel Cortes and I was a member of the special operations community and currently going to school to become a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN). On the questionnaires when returning home from deployments our answers would get us a one way trip to see a professional to see if we wanted to talk about anything. When I was growing up going to sleep hungry was normal, wearing the same clothes multiple days a week was normal, and being told you were never going to be anything in life was normal. As lame as it sounds if you never quit, your dreams will come true. Use all of the negativity as positive energy to help you achieve your goals.
