Well, I'm sitting at Manas Air Base, on the way home from Afghanistan. I've completed my third and final tour. Iraq - once, and twice to trashcanistan. I've decided to call it quits for a couple of reasons. 1: I'd have to leave Alaska if I were to re-up again, and that aint happening. 2: (and more importantly) I've been in just under 7 years and I've been away from home more than half of that time. I have five kids ages 12 and under who need their father back. I've decided I've given enough of my time to Uncle Sam, and it's time to give some to my family now. I'll never regret enlisting, and my service is something I'll always be proud of. It's time for a change though. The rest of you who continue to serve - stay safe, and THANK YOU.
