During my military TIS, I had the chance to serve a year in South Korea. I was assigned to 6th Battalion, 52nd ADA (Air Defense Artillery) Regiment under 35th ADA Brigade. Within that one year, I did many things during my downtime that I felt a Leader should do. I furthered my education via online college courses. I explored the country. I learned some of the Korean language through military computer-based training. During this time, the Army had already replaced Rosetta Stone with HeadStart, which I preferred over Joint Language University. Duolingo didn’t include the language. I also did many other things that I’ll explain another day.
