Awesome, glad to hear people supporting us ya know. Yeah it does suck leaving people behind...My Mother ended up getting a cancerous tumor the size of a grapefruit while I was on my last deployment and they weren't letting me go home..she's better now, but now my Gma is on life support after a heart attack and triple bypass surgery down in Florida and I wont get to see her, it sucks not getting to see family, I see the ones in Michigan twice a year for a week at the most.
But I don't regret my decision of joining, I serve this country proudly and it has given me what I have today; A 2010 SS Camaro! lol I nice place to live, going to college, great paying job and they just took out 3 of my wisdom teeth for free! I also got to go a few places since I've been in, Miami during the Super Bowl, Tampa a few nights while I was on missions to Haiti (7 total), Ireland, Germany, Kenya, Djibouti, Afghanistan, Qatar, Kuwait, and about 5 states besides beautiful NC that I'm stationed in now. Love it.
Thanks again folks.
