    Default Tough month for me

    Just checking in boys, I wish I had some good news for the forum. In the past month I lost a friend who I have known for over 4 years he was a good soldier friend and leader. I also had 2 of my old soldiers lose limbs due to battle injuries. I have also been medevaced twice this month for battle injuries. All I can do is keep my head up and be there for my boys who depend on me everyday. I hope the hospital will release me soon and let me get back to the fight. I thank every one of you for your support this deployment especially K.M.I.A your awesome man. I hope next time I will have some better news for u guys until then everyone be safe and thank you

    Thanks for your continued service.
    So the maples formed a union
    And demanded equal rights
    'The oaks are just too greedy
    We will make them give us light'
    Now there's no more oak oppression
    For they passed a noble law
    And the trees are all kept equal
    By hatchet, axe and saw

    Wow, that has been a rough month. What can anyone say but "hang in there" and "we're here"?




    But I think you already said one of the most important things:

    All I can do is keep my head up and be there for my boys who depend on me everyday.
    That's a statement of a true leader.

    Your profile shows your interest as Beer.

    Let me know when you'll get back to Benning and what type of beer you like.

    I'm a homebrewer... I'll brew up a batch of whatever you want and bring some down.

    It takes about 5 weeks, brew-to-pour, so give me as much lead time as you can.
