So after over 14 years of service, I am now staring down at the end of my army career. My body, according to the army, does not align with retention standards for military service. Too many injuries, all non combat related, yet probably not enough to qualify for a medical retirement. Yet, I know personally several gentlemen who are 100% service related disabled (one who will probably never be able to walk without a cane or a walker and be in constant pain from an errant cut during back surgery), and I feel terrible and guilty that I feel as good as I do.
So later this year, sooner than what I expected, I will be joining the time honored ranks of our forefathers who after serving their country, will start all over again. I am excited. I am also terrified.
Prayers for my family and I as we undergo this transition.
The Law of Unintended Consequences. That is what the protesters of Trump's rally in Chicago and ultimately, the nation, will face. The act of shutting down the rally only served to legitimize the belief of many Trump supporters of why they do support Trump. It will only to serve to force those on the fence to make up their minds as well. Pray for the safety of ALL candidates. The forest is dry, the winds are hot, all it takes is one match. It is going to be a very interesting summer.
Tactical Gear News:
In my quest for the ultimate universal rig, I ran across the following company, Snake Eater Tactical, based out of Oregon. I am really interested in their Burro Rifle Magazine pouches. Decent price and made here in the USA.
My own gear ever evolves and changes. I am working on redoing the Battle Belt this weekend.
