MAN Do I miss the Navy!!!!!
As the saying goes, you never know what you have until it's gone. Although I don't feel that I did nearly as much as I could have done while I was in the Navy, the things that I DID do and the things that I accomplished were so amazing and cool. Looking back at it with such fond memories is always a much invited step outside of the current realities. The friends that were made were awesome, even though I don't remember so many names of the people that I dealt with on a daily basis, but some stand out, good and bad. And it ALL makes each of us who we are in future years. The pride is never ending!
It's been 23 years since I separated after 10 years in. And it STILL seems like yesterday. I got involved heavily into music after going off active duty, and some of the music I wrote and recorded is in the player on my page. I hope whoever listens will like it, and I hope you'll pass it around as well. Take a listen to "On Sacred Ground". It was written in 2006 with the conflict at hand building overseas and I'm sure that some of our Heroes (because ALL of them are heroes) would enjoy blasting it for everyone over there.
I hope to meet some old and new friends here, and I hope that everyone is healthy and happy,
