This blog is officially a year old. I remember the day I sat down and decided to write my thoughts. At first I was very raw and aggressive in my entries. The time was full of so much uncertainty. I wasn’t sure where or when I was going to leave but I knew something would occur.
Now a year later, that guy that wrote that first entry really has changed. So much more life experience under his belt. I’ve met some great people in the last year. I’ve lost some friends and been thrown a few life bones here and there. I’ve experienced hardships and lived the life of a Soldier.
One thing that has been consistent is my sincere willingness to serve this beautiful country. If I had to do it all again I wouldn’t changed a thing. I still would have volunteered to go to war. I know that my time with this mans’ Army is not done. I can say that I may find myself fighting this fight again. Will it be OIF 4 or OIF 5?
I’d like to say thank you to all the people that have come to this site either by mistake or from another blog. Well over 185,000 unique visitors have had an interest in what I’ve said and I can say that I have appreciated that. It has blown me away with the generosity and the patriotism that some people have displayed.
So thank you for making this blog a living experience for me. Also for being the shoulder to lean on when I’ve needed it most.
