Bestest X-Mas present ever

My wife although she hates every and anything to do with my career in the army, realizes that to me, that first career (old man that I am, I am working on my second career now as a DoD contractor), is kind.  She maintains a footlocker full of old uniforms, keeps copies of my DD-214, personnel file, and health records, and maintains the “I love me” wall in my home office with framed copies of my commission and school graduation certificates.

This year’s best Christmas present was a shirt from my very first assignment out of the Infantry Officer’s Basic Course as platoon leader, 2nd platoon, Bravo Company, 5th Battalion, 21st Infantry Regiment at Fort Ord, CA.

I dunno,  Perhaps she remembers fondly our months in the Sinai standing up the Battalion, and her “vacation” resulting from it.
