Kip Caban, Taipei, Taiwan. #MyAmericanDreamScore
Kip Caban has turned their life around. "I can honestly say the US Army saved my life. I left a rundown trailer park in Texas for basic training less than a week after graduating high school. The Army gave me the discipline, life skills and coping tools my family were unable to provide. Since that time, I have collected a group of friends who have become my family. I've been very lucky and I am so grateful to the people who have helped me along the way.

Birth is a beginning And death a destination. And life is a journey: From childhood to maturity And youth to age; From innocence to awareness And ignorance to knowing; From foolishness to discretion And then, perhaps, to wisdom; From weakness to strength Or strength to weakness And, often, back again; From health to sickness And back, we pray, to health again; From offense to forgiveness From loneliness to love, From joy to gratitude, From pain to compassionAnd back, we pray, to health again; From offense to forgiveness From loneliness to love, From joy to gratitude, From pain to compassion And grief to understanding From fear to faith; From defeat to defeat to defeat Until, looking backward or ahead, We see that victory lies Not at some high place along the way, But in having made the journey, stage by stage, A sacred pilgrimage. Birth is a beginning And death a destination. And life is a journey, A sacred pilgrimage To life everlasting. -Alvin Fine
