To my brothers and sisters that are no longer with us, your sacrifice wasn’t in vain.  I’ve been out of the military for 10 years now.  It feels like it was just yesterday I left basic training (boot camp) to join my unit in Germany and Kosovo.  I miss the brotherhood we as soldiers had amongst each other.  My time in the military overseas helped me get to know myself better and I now have a better appreciation of life.  I thank all the brave and courageous young men and women that served and paved the way before me, the ones that fought with me and the ones that have my back while I sleep in the green zone at night.  I’m am now an inactive military veteran but always on duty.  I learned first hand that the transition from the military back to civilian life was a battle in its self.  There is always a battle to be fought and won.  Life a of progression and conquer all obstacles.  The spirit of a veteran lives forever.
