Default HOLY CRAP!!!! It's official

As I sit here and write this I cannot believe that it is true. After 27 years of service I will be officially retired from the United States Army in December.

It is bittersweet as I make this transition. I have had dreams of this day for many years now and I thought my feelings would be different. I know it's time for me to go, yet I have so much more to do and so much more to give, that I want to stay.

My body has taken a beating and I have endured more surgeries than I care to count. But, I would not have changed one thing. I have no regrets. I gave everything that I could give.

I have had the honor of meeting and working with some of the best that America has to offer. Together we have gone to places that some have never heard of and others that we wished we hadn't. I have seen the beauty this world has to offer and unfortunately have also seen the worst that humanity has to offer as well. But, in the end we did our jobs and we came home holding our heads high, even though we left a small piece of our soul on those battlefields with no names.

If you are out and about and see a man or a woman wearing a hat that says "WW2", "Korean War", or "Vietnam War" veteran, tell them thank you for your service. For those Veterans have seen and endured more than I could ever imagine. At the same time, thank their family members for their hard work and dedication in supporting their service member. The spouse and children have the hardest jobs in the military and they all to often go unrecognized for their sacrifice and service.

One last thing, I want to thank each and everyone of you for supporting us few, we band of brothers and sisters,

AIRBORNE ALL THE WAY
RANGERS LEAD THE WAY

Good luck Airborne Soldier! You've chosen the road less traveled and in the end, you were the wiser!

Only those that truly love this great country will appreciate your sacrifice ...thank you from all of us! I've been there for a time ...and I survived and now I thrive as you will~

First, thank you very much for your service.

Second, congrats on you retirement.

Third, I'm sure your wife will find ways to spend your retirement funds much faster than you planned - mine has - so now is a good time to think about your next career. Should be easy with your skills.
