There is something about being in this business that bonds us. It's like being through war. It doesn't matter if it's the same war. If you served in Bosnia and I served in Europe. We are vets. We know the short forms, the codes, the terrain, the training. We may not have shared the same bunk, but we share the same experiences.... what it is like to close and then open.....6 hrs later. What it is to be the weeds. To have that best buddy that has your back in the trenches. Experiences that you can only talk about with someone who has been there.
know ourselves better for it. We know people and understand human nature better because of it. And I proud to have served in this army shoulder to shoulder with all of you.
