Jonathan Combs enlisted in the army at the young age of 23. He was stationed at Fort Campbell, Kentucky and became a specialist.
"It's something I've always wanted to do since I was young. My father and everybody else had been in the military and it was something I wanted to do too," said Jonathan Combs.
Combs traveled a lot and he spent about a year in Afghanistan.
"It was probably the most fun I ever had, but it was also the hardest I've ever had to work, but it was fun and I enjoyed it a lot. It was a good experience," he said.
But he says it was also a culture shock.
"The majority of it looks like the moon and mars had a baby. It's just really barren and dusty and some parts of it were really green and really pretty."
Combs was a mechanic, but he was involved in combat a few times.
"It's scary, but you do the best you can."
Combs says he would do it again in a heartbeat.
"It was just the most fun I've had in my life so far. You learn a lot, see a lot and do a lot."
Now that he's home, he says he is looking forward to spending time with his family, relaxing, going back to school and life back to normal.
