“You made a 50-year-old former drill sergeant cry. I hope you are proud of yourself.”

Do you mean this sappy shit here? I was not too pleased when I crafted it. I could do much better if I were to write this now, four years later. But having witnessed the growing adulation this story has garnered over the years, all I can say is thank you. I do my best to make my stories as real as possible in the hope that people will find the connection they seek when they read them. And if I am able to strike even one chord in your heart, it makes this solitary journey so much more worthwhile.
