A Dull Tour is a Good Tour.....Remembering our fallen warriors

Getting used to being back home.....Helped out with breakfast at ALL ARE WELCOME Saturday morning which was nice.  Got to see my daughter perform the annual " That's Entertainment" show which I had missed for the past few years....also nice.

Having no major issues occur while deployed constitutes the "Dull Tour" side of things, but the time spent in Afghanistan was not without issues and challenges.

I've got the start of a book on my time in Afghanistan and will look to get it into format for e-publishing in the near future.  I like the idea of not having to deal with the publishing houses and all that related BS.  I wonder how many writers could have gone forward but were frustrated by the "system".

Getting used to being back home is a process and making sure all goes as expected takes time and effort.  I'll take it one step at a time and look to get myself back to normal here one day at at time.  Doing so will also be part of what I put in the book.

In the meantime, make sure to honor our fallen Warriors and show them that their sacrifice matters.  Yeah, holiday weekend and a break from work, etc.,etc. but take time for those who gave their all so you can have this break for work.

ALL gave some, but some gave ALL.  Sergeant First Class Jared C. Monti of Raynham, MA is an example in point.  He gave his life in Afghanistan trying to save his battle buddies.

We remember him and all others who gave the last full measure for their battle buddies and all of us.

Thank you to them and all who serve our great land.

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
