Chat With a Veteran Nic Cuevas-Quiles

The Daily Commercial - 3/13/2017

Town: Clermont

Branch of service and rank: Marines, major, Desert Storm, current reservist

Enlisted or drafted? I enlisted because my father's a retired marine. We're all jarheads in the house.

What did you so in the service? My primary job is in weapons.

Why was it important? It's hard to fight without them.

What is your most important memory from service? Whenever you come home. It's always good to come home.

What did you like least about service? Nothing.

What do you want people to understand about war? I believe that, sadly, war is a made-up term for disagreement on a massive scale. Should we have gotten over the egocentric, self-centered positions that we call war? Absolutely. You'd think that by this time the world would have grown up.
