‘I served in the Marine Corps for twenty-nine years. I had such a fellowship with my unit. We started in boot camp together and served together for twenty-nine years. I never lost anybody in that time. Now, though, I feel like I’m the one that got lost. I was dishonorably discharged and I have the Judge Advocate General working on it to get it fixed but the time frame is a joke. Once it gets fixed, I’m just going to get on with my life one day at a time. We all make mistakes and, eventually, we pay for them. But once we’re square with the house, life has to go on. The lesson is learned and the price is paid. Is it fair to be penalized for it forever? That’s a question I ask myself every day. What I did isn’t important anymore. What I do next is.’
