Today I attended the deployment of the 122nd EN BN. As someone who has walked in the shoes of every family member, I know today was not easy. The faces, while sharing a smile, or a laugh with their loved one, also showed the pain and fear they were covering up so deep down inside.
Farewell to the soldiers of the 122nd EN BN. May God watch over and protect you. May he give your family members and friends, comfort and peace to endure road ahead. Thank you for your service and sacrifice and for those of your family members. HOOAH!
The following quote has always held a soft spot in my heart. It’s just one of the many things that carried me through a deployment.
If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together, there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart.. I’ll always be with you. ~ Christopher Robin to Winnie the Pooh
