Veteran's Day is a day that is pretty important to me. I figured I would make a little post to honor all of my fellow Bills fans who served in the military. Also, I would love to get to know some fellow vets on here.
Now before someone tries to tell me this isn't Bills related, I know that there are some Vets on this blog. I just wanted to take the time to bring the attention to them just for a little bit. Veteran's are the true heroes in this country. Making sacrifices to help protect this great country. Without them, we might not even be on here today talking about Bills football. So to all my fellow veterans and current members of the military thanks for all that you do. Now, in the comment section I'd like anyone who served to put a little bit about what they did so we can all thank them for their service. Plus it will give us a something different to talk about besides how awful this season has been. I'll start with a little about myself. I joined the Army in 2007 and left for Basic Training about 2 weeks after I graduated. It was quite the change for me that's for sure. My job in the army was a 13M, or for people not in the military a Multiple Launch Rocket Systems Crewmember. If you want to see some awesome videos just look on youtube for it. Nothing like firing rockets down range. My first duty station was in Camp Casey in Korea which is quite close to the DMZ. The DMZ is the border between North and South Korea. I spent a year there and then was sent to Fort Sill in OKlahoma. I never got the chance to deploy because I had an accident and had to get back surgery which pretty much cut my career short. I finished up my five year contract last summer and now I'm using the GI bill to go to college. I don't regret joining the Army at all. There were some days that it got rough but looking back I'm glad I'd do it. I've had a lot of friends ask me if I'd do it again and the answer to that is yes. In a heart beat. Knowing that I served my country is something that I will always be proud of. Well, that's pretty much it about me. There are plenty of veterans and active duty people who have done so much more than I have. If you see one of them, take the time to thank them. I know I always appreciated it when someone thanked me. Go Bills!
