    Eight years ago today, I came home to my wife on April Fools Day, and announced to her that I had joined The Army Reserve.

    I think she thought I was playing a joke on her, until I asked "Today is April Fools Day?!?"

    Needless to say, My eight year enlistment expires today, and I couldn't me happier to let the big gubment machine chug away without me. :celebrate

    Never met you, but thanks for your service from me and my family! Next to Jesus, volunteers in the service is the best gift I have ever received.

    I just finished my servioce as well.

    Of course, I didn't set me username as my rank and last name.

    PFC MCD wouldn't have read as well.

    I can't believe it has been 8 years! This has been the happiest April Fool's Day. From here on out I won't have to think of the day he joined but the day he finished instead. I bought myself a beautiful bouquet today that looks gorgeous just for the special occasion! After 2 deployments and 2 kids we have learned alot and grown so much together. Thank you to all the men and women who served with my husband and who are now taking his place serving our country. Also Thank You to everyone on here that has supported us, especially this last deployment. And to all the newbies we haven't met or don't quite know yet; we look forward to meeting you. :shock:

    Congrats you guys! We are lucky to have fellows like you that have served this country well.

    If it isn't broke, then don't fix it, or you'll fix it until it's broke.

    never mind no jokes alllow!!!
    ”The great body of our citizens shoot less as times goes on. We should encourage rifle practice among schoolboys, and indeed among all classes, as well as in the military services by every means in our power. Thus, and not otherwise, may we be able to assist in preserving peace in the world… The first step – in the direction of preparation to avert war if possible, and to be fit for war if it should come – is to teach men to shoot!”
    ~President Theodore Roosevelt
