Friday we were told to turn our gear in. Seems like we won't be going. I have to admit that I'm a little disappointed and that I've volunteered for the next rotation already. (Some of us just never learn I guess...) But I wanted to thank everyone here for both their concern and their input. Both were greatly appreciated.
I guess I always just saw it as doing my job. I realize that it's a job a lot of people won't ever do, but like I said, to me it's just my job. I've never felt the need to be thanked, especially by veterans. But thank you again for helping me to see the other side of it.
By the way, SSKC, I thought that was funny, not flippant. Of course, I've also got a weird sense of humor too.
