Birthdate:Feb 14
Location:Friendship, Wisconsin, United States of America
I am an Army Brat!
My hometown is nowhere, my friends are everywhere.
I grew up with the knowledge that home
Is where the heart is and the family…
With no dependence on the dwelling.
Mobility is my way of life.
Some would wonder about roots,
Yet they are as deep and strong as the mighty oak.
I sink them quickly, absorbing all an area offers
And hopefully, give enrichment in return.
Travel has taught me to be open.
Shaking hands with the universe,
I find brotherhood in all men.
Farewells are never easy.
Yet, even in sorrow comes strength and ability
To face tomorrow with anticipation…
And if when I leave one place,
I feel that half my world is left behind, I also know
that the other half is waiting to be met.
Friendships are formed in hours and kept for decades.
I will not grow up with anyone but I will mature with many.
Be it inevitable that paths part, there is constant hope
That they will meet again.
Love of country, respect and pride
Fill my being when Old Glory passes in review.
When I stand to honor that flag,
So also do I stand in honor of all soldiers, and,
Most especially, to the parents whose life created mine.
Because of this,
I have shared in the rich heritage of Army life.
