Everyone's got a 9/11 post. I was twelve years old and living in New York City.
End of story.
So here's to my best friend from childhood, currently deployed to the middle of nowhere, Afghanistan. You'd better kick some military ass and get your E4. Your monthly care package is a little belated but definitely enroute. I'm so proud of you for doing your EMT training while you're over there. You're going to be an awesome tech. I wish I was there to watch your back. I'll be waiting to completely embarrass you at the gate when you come home for leave next month.
I love you. Stay safe.
