This month has been filled with highs and lows. Work has created a lot of stress and frustration but it has also created a very big highlight in my career.
I had the privilege of being promoted to Major by two fantastic teammates that I highly respect.
Throughout my frustrations, I have been reminded of how blessed I am to be surrounded by friends that can read between the lines of letters and emails, friends who are willing to put their lives on hold to help me, and to celebrate even when life hurts.
Even one life is too many to lose.
While we should do this daily, I encourage you on the 22nd of every month to call and check your battle buddy. It takes just a moment. Military or not, we deserve to see each other tomorrow.
