Deployments? Same thing. Training evolutions leading up to deployment are fast and frequent, come deployment it’s go time, and when you get home? To me, it felt like go time extended... moving from station to station and then looking ahead to either deploying again or leaving the military.
2019 has been a year for the record books. I've encountered so much good both personally and professionally. I've also encountered some unexpected hardships, but like everything in life each hardship is a learning opportunity and offers a unique opportunity to persevere and improve.
There are moments where I wish I could throw my hands up and go back to the military. There are moments where I wish I could be around people who are like me. There are moments where I wish life would go back to a simpler time.
