Memorial Day is a weird time of year for me. I have torrents of mixed emotions about West Point, the military, and combat. The one thing I do not have mixed emotions about is my love for all of the warriors who refused to go gentle into that good night. That love extends to the remarkably strong families and friends of those who stood tall in the face of horror.
I can’t explain how proud I am to have served with so many men and women better than myself. I’ll always have mixed emotions about leaving the military and hanging up my weapons. However, I’m humbled to be involved with www.huddl.org providing a safe place for our veterans and their families in dealing with the effects of trauma.
With a heavy heart, on behalf of the huddl community, I’d like to say thank you to all of our veterans. You are always in my heart and you will always be family.
