I had one last dinner with my family today at Mimi’s Cafe in Fairfield. It’s crazy how fast six months just passed like that. I can still remember driving home from MEPS in San Jose thinking to myself that I’d finally swore in and that August was so far away. Now, it’s August and Wednesday, I fly out to Chicago, Illinois to start my journey.
Thanks to all of my friends and family who had supported me and gave me words of encouragement. Like my friend Luke said: If they say you can’t do it, do it. And I’m going to prove all of those who said that I couldn’t go through it wrong because I’m coming out of this stronger than when I came in.
