Brothers for Life

Marcus's picture

By Marcus - Posted on 25 October 2012

As I sit in my apartment packing up the last of my stuff, getting ready for the last few days before I ship out to boot camp. I realize how real these past four years with my brothers have been. As though it was only yesterday that I received my bid and did my first Ruh Rah Rega in the Pit all the while wondering was this the right choice for me. I realized a few weeks later that not only was ATO the right place, but that I gained a family. Brothers that in my time of need, have come to help me no matter how far or whatever the case may be. Though nobody ever said it would be easy, the struggles that I have faced have only made me stronger not just as a brother, but as a person that I know they would be proud of. So now that I am facing a new challenge and obstacle, I will not run. For I would proudly give my life away for anyone of them. Nor will I be afraid. Because I have those same brothers that I know who will write me and give me encouragement when all I want to do is give up. I have never been more Proud to say that I am an ATO for the Zeta Mu Chapter at Sam Houston State and have a brotherhood of 200,000 plus strong.
