I had a pretty good day today. I had a knock at my door this morning that roused me from my sleep and to my surprise it was an old buddy of mine (Mike) who has been serving with the Army in Iraq. I hadn't heard from him in two years because he keeps volunteering to go back over there. We met back in '96 when we where both working in a night club as bouncers and got to talking one night after closing time and discovered the even though we had been in different branches of the service we had been some of the same places at the same times. We became like brothers.
We talked for several hours about everything from politics to family and it was really good to see him again and know that he is ok. Family and friends are so important and I am blessed because I have my family,and my 2 best friends, Mike and Cindy.
In closing tonight I want to say thank you to all the veterans that came before me and those that have and will go after me. Semper Fi.
