On Friday some of my unit got together for a farewell dinner to one of the best Non-Commissioned Officers in our unit. It’s funny how somebody leaving brings everybody closer in some strange way.
It was the first time I had been to a Japanese restaurant and it was pretty amazing. The entire evening consisted of everybody laughing, drinking, and remembering things we have done in the military. With a deployment around the corner losing our best NCO was almost like a slap in the face but we must move on. People move units all the time and we know this, but when a connection is made with somebody it becomes personal.
Hope you have fun in Korea.
We had so much Sake, I love it!
