Have you heard of many business owners leaving their lawn care business to join the military?

This couple is doing just that.

Young parents close their business and join military (http://www.thenewsdispatch.com/articles/2007/04/30/news/news2.txt) - Amanda wants to be a nurse. Or a paramedic or, as she puts it, anything in the medical field. So she joined the National Guard for the educational benefits.

Not only does she plan to serve as a medic in the Guard, but she hopes to use the military's college payment option to get a degree after her time in the Guard comes to an end.

While both seem happy with the choices they've made - they closed up a somewhat lucrative lawn care business in order to join the National Guard - there are some loose ends to be sewn up.
