  • Back for a short while

    Hey all! First off, thank you for those of you that have reminded me of the community that Broncomania is. Topper, JWill, GEM, and others.

    It has been a rough six months. Between attending funerals of some good friends I have been in the dirt on and off trying to get the reservists that work for me ready to keep themselves and the rest of the Batallion alive for our turn.

    As it stands now I will be leaving my band, friends, and family on April 12th and returning sometime in March next year. The first few months are stateside training as the Batallion I am deploying with is, after all, reservists.

    As much as I respect our citizen soldiers, I can tell you, I am concerned. Although Marines, they lack the experience of their Active Duty counterparts. All I can do is try to teach them all I have learned, and glean as much knowledge as I can from all of those I know who have been 3, 4, even 5 or more rotations.

    I wish I didn't have to miss football season, but hey, some things are more important than the Broncos, believe it or not.

    I missed the Bengals game that I had tickets too (the blizzard), but I did want you all to know I got the chance to take the tour of the stadium during the few days I was in Denver. Amazing, something I will not forget.

    Feel free to email me, I can't promise I will be able to get on Broncomania, as depending on which proxy I happen to fall under it may be blocked, but I have yet to find the proxy that wouldn't let me get my band email.

    WWW.YYRBAND.COM you'll see the link.

    Thanks again, take care everybody.

                Davii - It's a privledge to hear from you who actually experiences it, so thank you for making this thread. May God be with you and those reservists you train. I'm am truly sorry about the funerals you have been attending of your friends. I have the utmost respect for you, and wish you a safe and happy return.
                "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
