Notably, he felt it was his duty to serve having been born into a free society – a way to earn his citizenship. He also wanted to do his part to ensure the U.S. military didn’t revert back to a draft to fight the Global War on Terror – something his sons could have faced as they grew older. Robinson chose the Infantry at age 34 – no easy feat. He literally had to fight his way into the Infantry, writing letters to both President Bush and Vice President Cheney so that he could join in his mid-thirties.
