Im Back

Well looks like i finished up early this time.I got to Texas,and was doing pretty good till the results from the Cardiologist caught up with me.Seems I've developed cardio vascular disease and I'm also CPOD.The Doc said the trip itself would kill me.I asked for a second opinion but the army doesn't work that way.So they sent me back home two weeks ago & I've been processing at the unit for the last two weeks fighting this.Looks like sometime in the next couple months i will be medically discharged and will no longer be able to serve this great country of ours.I'm sorry i haven't written till today.Right now I'm in a pretty dark place emotionally but i will pull out of it.Ive had a pretty good run and no regrets,I'm just having a hard time letting go.I'll just have to find another way to make myself useful.Ya"l have a great day & thank ya"ll so much for all the supportive statements ive found on my previous posting.


  1. Hey Brother. Glad you made it back alive.

    Tell us about this heart condition. What is the next course of action?

    The soldiers that I know in the private sector have done really well after retirement man.

    You will too.

    Thank you for everything you do. I wouldn't be a free man without your effort and work in the military.

    You will re-invent yourself and it will be great. I know it.


  2. Good to see you back - sorry to hear about the circs. Best wishes on your second start


  3. Good to see you back!
    Seems like a run on heart troubles going around lately.
    My prayers are with you on this one.
    Agreement with Bobby - without you guys out there on the frontlines, we aren't free men and women here. I have total respect for the military and all those that sacrifice their lives on a daily basis to keep us safe from the enemies that would love to destroy us.

  4. I can tell you about heart problems. Do what they tell ya man cause open heart surgery sucks

  5. I agree with Wes, listen to the docs! You have done your service so no need to feel any guilt. Take care of YOU first for a change. {{{hugs}}}

  6. welcome back.
    Get healthy as possible.
    Can you go back to guarding prisoners?..was it the "legally challenged" that you called them?

  7. I agree with Dorrie that this is "your " time now.You have served your country well my friend and should be very proud. xxx
