This weekend Husband retires from military service.
He was full time USAF for 13 years. Once Shecky was born he got out. He didn't want to be gone as much as the military required. He didn't want to miss that much of Shecky's growth and love. He joined the USAF Reserves. He was based out of Fort Worth for 7 years. One weekend a month. Two weeks a year.
As of this Sunday, May 4, 2008, he will be officially retired. No more weekends playing war games. No more trips hither and yon. No more worries about his unit being called to action during a war. A pension and health benefits waiting for us when he turns 65. Fond memories of his days serving our country and some not so fond...
It's the end of an era. The close of a very long chapter. Congratulations Honey. You did it!
