Hello everyone.

I am a 25 year old soldier currently serving in Iraq.
when I was 22 I was academically expelled from a university after two years there (made some bad choices, didnt go to classes, failed a lot).
So after 3 years in the Army my last year is coming up when I get home from Iraq. I want to go back to this college but I can't seem to get over this feeling that I'm going to stick out like a sore thumb. I'm a vet, I feel old, I have to start over from the beginning, etc... . This school (Eastern Michigan University) has a small Student Vet's Club, but it is litterally very small. Those are the only people I can some what imagine accepting me into a community...
I know 25 isn't old... but I still cant shake this feeling.
Help?
