I’ve been waiting for 2021 to come for five years now, not just since the pandemic came and made us all wish 2020 away.
My Army contract comes to an end in mid August and I cannot even come close to putting that feeling of relief and excitement into words.
I’ve had some really unique experiences, met some great people, and made a lot of cool memories, but I’m READY to close this chapter of my life.
This weekend was our drill weekend so I was in the office yesterday and today. Seems a bit crazy to me to get Soldiers from all over the state to come unite in one of the worst outbreak areas in the entire state, but it’s the military so it is what it is. Most of our unit drilled virtually online but my job is in the office so here I sit.
I’m proud of my time served, but I didn’t have a family when I enlisted and I know that this is no longer the journey I want to continue once it’s done.
