I retired from the Army in 2008 but still work for the Department of Defense taking care of the men and women that are still doing our country proud.
I've deployed 6 times and sometimes as long as 18 months.
I must say I've enjoyed the support from our fellow citizens over the last 10 years and it really made a difference to us all down range. So if you haven't served in the military, you still have contributed a great deal to our men and women with your support, and I thank you.

All made me wiser and stronger.
And thanks to all of you that appreciate what others do for you.
278th Armored Calvary Regiment (det) Air Cav 1979-1985. Started as an E-2, worked my way through OCS, and left shortly thereafter. It was a reserve unit, and my CO was killed in an OH-6 crash. The guy who replaced him was a drunk, and a REMF to top it off. Many left.
No matter how much we love our work, we are expecting more days off than Monday. And the more days off, the better. However, do all companies respect the legal rights to rest from workdays? And do they give a day off on holidays?
