Yet again I find myself having a lot to say; maybe too much, as I can’t seem to put much in this journal at the moment. Maybe it’s the seeming futility of words that makes it so hard; maybe it’s a case of too many mixed emotions.

In the 20 months since I separated from Active Duty, I’m beginning to discover that I’ll never again feel the job satisfaction I did while in the Navy. My prayers go out to all the soldiers, sailors, and airmen as they defend our country these coming days, and to their families as well.

“On the contrary, the soldier, above all other people, prays for peace, for he must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.”
