Last night Mustache Man submitted his first application at a Sheriff's department. We worked on it for 2 hours, and at the end, our blood was pounding and our adrenaline levels were up. This is the beginning of the next season of life for us. And we couldn't be more excited.
We are creating change. It is powerful to see how the decision we are making effect our future, especially when we have felt so powerless for the last 3 and a half years.
The Marine Corps has been the biggest challenge we've ever faced. With it comes many blessings, the 2 most important being our beautiful children. Now, once we are "out", Jerry will be able to use the GI Bill to pursue a degree in Criminal Justice, like he was planning. This will open up many opportunities, and consistent time together as a family. In comparison, 4 years of challenges and hardship is worth ever moment for the future we are working towards.
