I'm feeling that feeling....

I'm getting that feeling again, the one that had me sign up in the first place. Sure some shit just straight up sucked, but in reality I enjoyed it. In a moment of clarity and honesty I must admit I battle the balance of "workin for the man" and staying true to who I am, but the truth is I'm a guy with maybe a little too much pride, and I don't feel like I'm done yet. I want to work hard and I want to be proud of what I've done in my life. I want to continue to honor guys like my father and grandfather and great grandfather who fought for our country. The common response I get is "but why? you got out and your healthy and alive" I don't bother to explain myself, because I just don't believe they would understand, because if they did, they would have joined as well. Say what you will, I got shit to do, and beyond all the motorcycle lifestyle bullshit, I'm a hard working American and I intend on doing all that I can to be proud of my answer when my grand kids ask me what I've done in my life...

by the way this is no stab at anybody, just how I feel

I feel u man. And I'd be lying if I said I hadn't kicked around the idea of joining back up, but the freedom of choice has always been what keeps me from doing it, that and I enjoy marijuana way too much to give it up. I miss being out to sea like a mother fucker, but knowing as a civilian if I wind up working for a real peice of shit, I can just quit and find another job, unfortunately in the navy I wound up stuck under way too many shitbirds that had no place in a senior position above me, yet the beauracracy of the navy has it so. For me, 8 years was good while it lasted, if u go back there's not a person that'll fault you for it. It's something to be proud of.

Later nigger.
