Taking a Breather
Friends, Family, and Supporters,
Please forgive me as my posts become more infrequent over the next few weeks. We’re coming down to the line, and my focus is oriented solely on the safe return of my men during a most formidable final stretch. Will keep posting soon :).
But as I take a step back and look at where this simple website is today from where it started almost a year ago, I shake my head in disbelief. What started as a means of sharing stories from the front lines has turned into my haven away from the battlefield. Managing this site has been a therapeutic release for me during a stressful tour. I read messages of phenomenal inspiration and support from well-wishers all over the world. Your love and empathy have been one of the strongest forces pushing me forward through a difficult tour. I am humbled at the loyalty so many of you have offered from so far away. It means more than you could ever know. A sincere thanks from Kandahar to all of you for always being there for me and my men. Keep the summer barbecue grill hot and save a cold one for me…
