Definitely going to miss this kind of nonsense.

A Farewell To Arms
As of 0930 yesterday morning, my service with the Army National Guard has come to an end. And, even though it's what is best for my family, it still sucks. So much of my life and my identity have been wrapped up in being a soldier and a veteran, and now that it's over, I feel lost. I know that it will get better eventually, but I'm currently kind of, sort of, completely terrified. What do I do now? Who am I? What am I doing with my life? What's up with the universe and all that? How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood? These are the things going on in the old canoodle right now. But I do know one thing. Despite all the griping and complaining about the military that I have done, I am really going to miss it. It has truly been an honor serving with all my brothers and sisters in the armed forces (even the stupid ones,) and it is something that I will be proud of for the rest of my life. Sanstrousers out.
