Thank for the thanks WC, and thanks also to keith 54 and PitRow for the same. My entire adult life has been in the military and I don't yet know how retirement is going to hit me. I am very proud of the things I have done and extremely grateful for the experiences and lifelong memories that accompany those things. If ya add it all up, counting Desert Storm, I have over 4.5 years of combat zone time throughout the middle east. Many things I wouldn't care to forget, but many, many more that I wouldn't want to forget. Not a particularly religous man, but at each "special" feast (T-Giving, Christmas, Easter, Mem day BBQ, 4 July BBQ), I add onto the grace requesting that the Big Guy watch out for all of my brothers-in-arms, wherever in the world they are and whatever they are doing.
