Rugby, athletics and football are among the favorite things for many to watch and discuss, but only a few understand the efforts behind the scene. On the other hand, military is considered to an adventurous venture for masculinity but only a few understand what entails military training. It basically involves pushing trainees beyond the normal human being abilities. however this will always remain to be an alien phrase to the weak, a nightmare to the faint hearted but a song of solidarity to all those who understand the brotherhood of the bayonet. The training is meant to instill resilience, patience, courage, and pride to fragile civilians to produce warriors and war machines. The passion to be among the war machines and will to sacrifice my comfort for the betterment of many citizens in my country drove me to join the military but all this was about to come to the ultimate test of enduring three years of initiation into the military culture.

I joined KMA on 12 December 2015, which marked the beginning of 36 months of continuous rigorous training. At first it did not sound so long, it was just 3 years.

The never tiring instructors were never on my back but in my nostrils, itching and making it harder to breathe.

After some months of training little did I know it was key to discovering my own abilities for the said the harder the training the stronger the solidarity. By the end of the first three months, I realized that I could run faster and for a longer distance without much struggle, (they called it endurance level). By the end of the first year, I could not only compete against the cadets in my intake but also with other senior cadets. Professionalism is key in the military before any soldier but for me they added a technical skill on top of it.

Before I joined the military, I was among the group that claimed it had no talent but now I have another perspective for I know my talent now. Although I feel I have much potential that is untouched and unexplored I will always be grateful to the military for they uncovered the hidden
