Last one out please turn the lights off

So as of last night the Commander of the 82nd was the last US Servicemember to step off Afghan soil. Two decades, our country’s longest war.

This month while not fully over has been hard on all Veterans. I know I have lost sleep, been angry, and cried inside. I also have to tend with other memories of wars long past. This month 31 years ago we started our first foray into Iraq. Our unit had forward deployed assets to Honduras and we self deployed back to Ft Campbell, Ky. Less than a month later our mission became Desert Storm.

Remember!!!!! You are not alone. Don’t let the demons inside win. Lets crush those 22 a month. Talk to a fellow veteran, call the damn VA hotline, don’t quit I am here if you want to talk.
