My Fellow IW'ers,

As it stands, this will be my last post as a soldier. Tomorrow I will turn in this machine, along with my other equipment of great communication abilities to the supply guy. Followed by the great departure and soon to be snow covered travel back to NE Oregon, where I will turn in the rest of 'their' stuff. Then the hard travel to where home awaits in The Bluegrass State. The plan is to be home for Thanksgiving weekend festivities.

This will begin the conclusion of my 23yr 3 month continuous active duty career. Where has the time gone?

Peace Out!
Felix

Interesting -- I'll be in the Bluegrass for Thanksgiving visiting family myself. Don't we have a descent contingent of Bluegrass Ironworkers these days? How many out there would be willing to meet up in, say, Lexington sometime?

Felix, I wish all soldiers got to make it 23 years. Congrats. You got that consulting job lined up?

Very cool, Felix! [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img] So, what are your plans, now?
Yeah, from what I understand, there is me and Lyle in the Bluegrass, atm. Lyle is in Lexington itself, so he could probably make a meeting very easily, as could I. Let us know if you guys are up to something. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Well, fellow Emerald Dragon (and even that will come to pass..), may your transition to the Civilian world be a smooth one. And may you recieve the same respect as those we remembered yesterday (on Veterans Day), you've earned it!

...I can't say how much respect I ahve for that much service...heck, I only hope I can put that much time into something that benefits people...

Oh, and yep...I kind of live in Lexington right now...my dorm's a couple of blocks from Rupp Arena, making nearly everything inside of New Circle Road within walking distance...though I seldom want to walk for more than a couple hours at a time ...
