Army Friends, new and old
I am still considering leaving the Army when my obligation is complete. More often than not, it feels as though the time and energy required to maintain my motivation for being a good soldier and a competent officer would be more beneficial if focused elsewhere.
After expressing this line of reasoning to my good friend Kevin, he said, “But Emily, where would you find friends as important as those you have from the Army? You don’t meet those kinds of people just anywhere.”
He is right. I would go to the ends of the earth for those Army friends. You don’t meet people like that every day.
