Thanks for the repost, Big Teddy. Bittersweet memories of days gone by.

I remember making the vids from the days of having SF as an idol and all I could care about. They made me forget about pain or physical limitations. Then I came to Bragg and met SF MSG and other personnel who saw them. Instead of joining the ranks, I ended up working with QP's only when they are physically broken: Training, deployment, accident, and post retirement injuries. Instead of the 7 P's, it's the 5 P's (puke, puss, poo, pee, pain). The less glamorous aspect of one of the most dangerous life path anyone could choose. It's been humbling and sobering to go from seeing them as superhumans to just another human being in pain. Their sacrifices are immense, and the toll on their family is no less significant. It's been an honor, and a privilege to care for you. Thank you for all that you do.

One day I shall stop admiring, and start becoming. I will go back to Bragg.

Bittersweet indeed.
