I just wanna thank Facebook for the reminder today....as if this last few weeks wasn’t bad enough...
She was my friend....she was loud as hell! But she was my friend. I worked day Shift in Afghanistan, my days would be made of working in the facility guarding detainees or over seeing a compound for about 12 hours. Then I would have my collateral duty, where I processed all the forms for everyone, Army and Navy, to get qualified as a Correction Officer Journeyman, through the Department of Labor.
So after I finish my shifts, where I am threatened, treated like crap, sometimes have crap or spit on me, it’s time to relax right? NOPE! Every day I have to go to the Navy admin office and work on paperwork, and this small town boy from Southern Illinois, gets to spend a few hours a day with this loud mouth girl from Yonkers!

I used to sleep a lot when I was in the Navy. We would work hard, study hard, and play hard, and sleep even harder. Then we’d wake up and do it all over again.
