You know I got back into the military a year and a half ago to persue a better lifestyle. I was broke and had a worthless job, basic lost everything I owned. To include my apartment, and 95% of everything I owned when I got evicted. The funny thing is is I had over 30 job applications at different locations and noone would heir an ex-soldier. I didn't get it. But thats another story.

Back to the topic at hand. I got back in as a photo journalist. It sounded like fun, and easier than being a Cav Scout. So I went to DINFOS and did really well. Got back to my unit and began to get ready to Mobilize for another deployment in Iraq. In the MOB process I got my back, which I had a known prior injury in, checked out. Three MRI's and 25 x-rays later, I am no longer deployable, EVER.

In fact, I now have to go to a review board because the Army, IAW AR 40-501, chapter 3, does not think I am physically fit enough to meet the standards of staying in the military. So I am in the process of getting a medical discharge.

I'm sorry I can't be there for you 211th, I love you guys, and my thoughts and prayers are with you always. You guys better come home, all of you. I wish you the best and I hope I'm still around when you get back. I plan on you guys doing great things, and please keep your heads down. Don't be afraid of the unknown because pretty soon it will be all you know. I wish I had better words of wisdom. I miss you Hookers already.
