    Thank you to all the men and women for your devotion to the preservation of freedom all over this world. I will be thinking of all those empty chairs of those who never made it back home. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    I don't think I ever finished why I discharged early. I enlisted 4-14-11, shipped out 10-15-11, graduated basic and had 2 weeks of AIT left, was out in wargames in the rain and I fell off a turret of a Stryker and landed on my back. Messed it up bad and was Medically discharged under honorable conditions 12-15-11. Wish I was still in. But the VA is finally getting off there a**es and taking care of me. Been almost a year and still not the same I was before basic. God bless you all who served out your term, wish I could of.

    A great big Thank You to all the veterans who served our country, and to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. You and your families are in my prayers. And a special Thank You to the greatest Uncle and Korean War Hero (in my eyes) Uncle Ervin, you are greatly missed. RIP 5/28/29 - 1/16/10
