You will all probably be surprised to learn that in addition to being Veterans Day, November 11th marks an important anniversary. I joined the Army on November 11, 2003. It is hard to believe my life could change so much in two years. Today is also a milestone because I received my combat patch today marking more than 30 days in a combat zone. I probably wont sew it on my uniform, however, until I return. Superstition says that it would be bad luck to do so here.
I wont go into a retrospective of the past two years. Most of you are familiar with at least some of the highs and lows. I still have a lot of Army time ahead and am trying to look forward rather than back.
