Bucket List: Jacob Brown


Growing up I never thought of having a bucket list. But today I can think of so many items that I could add that list, items that would make my life ideal. My items range from watching a Red Sox game, getting married under a willow tree, and to serving overseas. My items are not extreme but they will not bore me either. Those items will be a major factor in how I live my life.

            I plan to be a family man but  also to serve in the military; goals that may butt heads. My first goal is to first graduate college and then enlist into the U.S. Army. I’ve always wanted to be a soldier since I was a young boy; I’ve always told myself that I would serve someday. I’ll combine my goals of being in the Army with another goal, being a law enforcement officer, by serving as an MP officer in the Army.

            Beyond those two main goals are other minor but fulfilling goals: attending Razorback football, baseball, basketball games, and one of their track meets. I’d like to watch the Red Sox beat the Yankees. As a sucker for landscapes I would like to visit the Grand Canyon and Yosemite National Park. [FYI, neither are in the Midwest, ;-)] I have a fear of heights, but that fear may keep me safe. Still,  I would love to climb a mountain or two in the USA, just to help overcome my fear of heights.
