    My cousin left for the army

    and as I am very proud of her, I am still sad. We shared a room for a whole year, and were super close. I told her everything and now that she is gone I feel empty. I have attachment issues and for her to go breaks my heart. I am scared because the army changes people, but I...

    Been there. Iraq, first gulf war.

    Memories are far off. I know I made a difference. I was in Special Ops and flew missions into the theatre that weren't posted on CNN or any media. Proud of those who are serving today.
