I got in a car accident on Tuesday. My new car got pretty roughed up as did I but I am ok. It made me think about things and people I am thankful for. RallyPoint was foremost next to my loved ones. I love many of the people on here and come to call many close or dear friends.
I'm grateful to meet @SSG V Michelle Woods to meet her and hang out in DC last summer. @CPl Brett Wagner for showing me how much my old alma mater had changed. I'm especially grateful to CW3 (Join to see) for being a wonderful friend and keeping me out of jail when I wanted to commit assault on a coworker and checking on me after my accident, PO1 (Join to see) and SSG (Join to see) for looking out for me on my multiple road trips back and forth from DC to Chicago last November and December and for listening to me rant. SSgt (Join to see), 1LT L S, SFC James Sczymanski, SGM (Join to see), SFC Peter Cyprian for being wonderful to me. CPT (Join to see) for his kindness to my daughter - She loved the note and bracelet. I'm posting pictures. Thank you all for your kindness to me and for sharing the laughter and tears. Love you guys!!

What's not to love? The stimulating conversations, The people who are more like true brothers and sisters than anyone, the bonding, sharing of memories and "war" stories the intellectual topics of discussions!!

Glad to hear you are okay after your accident, PV2 (Join to see).

I enjoy the camaraderie here on RallyPoint and the exchange of opinions, even if I disagree with some of them. One of the things I enjoy here very much is how much I have learned. People have recommended books. I've seen people who are having a tough go of it, and that always makes me stop and count my blessings - whether it's in person or online.

Most of all, I enjoy the connectedness I feel with SMs, vets, and retirees here on RallyPoint. Of course I'm not best buds with many, but I do feel connected, and that's entirely because of RallyPoint.
