On Veteran’s Day I also feel a different kind of gratitude. I am incredibly grateful for the eight years that I served in the Army. It made me understand what I was capable of and made me realize my own strength. The person that I was while I was in the Army was the best that I have ever been. The Army enabled me to have experiences that I never would have had otherwise. It turned me from a small town girl into a citizen of the world. It brought me life-long friendships and introduced me to the love of my life. I would not have the life that I have today if it was not for those incredible eight years.
So, to Uncle Sam I say a heartfelt “Thank You” and to all my friends and comrades from the old days – Hooah!
