I would like to say how proud and thankful I am, as a soldier, for everyone's support and appreciation for what I do. I have tried to not mention my circumstances too much, as this is a college fotball board and not a Soldier board.

I truly love and cherish my opportunity each day to wear this uniform. In that lies the problem. I put this uniform on every day. There is no escape from the reality that I see every day. This board is one of the few times that I can "escape" back to "normality". Sure, I can discuss football with other soldiers as we watch whatever game is available on AFN that weekend, but still, I am looking at the uniform and am reminded that I am here. With the computer, I can take a few moments out of my day and get away.

I in no way, shape, or form want this post to be seen as anything but appreciative for your support. Without it, there would not be much morale left. I hold dear everything that the US stands for, good and bad, and try to show it in my actions.

Thank you all for the support.

SGT Daniel M. Golden (Mac)
