Day 13 365


First, acknowleding I missed posting yesterday. Life happens. I got caught up. Totally forgot.

Second, the feels are raw tonight. A lifetime ago I served in a Marine Corps combat unit. We did shit. We took names. We came home alive.

Years later, one of my brothers life came to a sudden and unplanned end. We shed tears. We mourned. We moved on.

Today, the anniversary of his untimely departure, shakes my foundation. I went from cocky old me to a quivering, crying, gut punched emotional roller coaster riding passenger in shear nano-seconds.

I hurt, deep in my core. I cannot explain it. Tears burning down my cheeks.

Until Valhalla Soup. These many bourbons to your honor.

Semper Fi brother. I miss you.
