4 day weekends rule

Posted: November 26, 2010 in Uncategorized

One of my favorite parts of the army are the 4 day weekends. I get atleast one a month but this month I have had three 4 day weekends! Veterans day, a Brigade Training Holiday, and Thanksgiving. The time off is just awesome, especially considering when my unit is in the field or when we are deployed I work 7 days a week.

Yesterday we celebrated Thanksgiving at our home in Hawaii. This is our second thanksgiving away from family since being out here. Our original plan called for several guests but due to a family situation a couple of our guests decided at the last minute not to come. Thankfully we did have the opportuntity to host the wife of a Citadel classmate of mine whose husband is currently deployed. It was sad for her to celebrate Thanksgiving without her  husband but she had her Citadel family to take care of her.

One of the biggest things I am thankful  for is my family. In that group I include my close friends and neighbors, my extended family, my army family, my Citadel family, and my immediate family. My “families” make everything I do that much more important.
