Where does the time go?

All this blogging about the military in the previous post just reminded me of something. It was 15 years ago today - September 18, 1992 - that I enlisted in the U.S. Army. I got out for good exactly 12 years later - September 18, 2004.

After spending 12 years in the military, some people have asked me why I didn't stay in to get my 20 years so I could draw a retirement. I have plenty of reasons for getting out, which I don't feel like rehashing at this late hour. All I have to do is look at what I did get out of the deal:

A Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies
A Single Subject Teaching Credential
A Master of Arts in Education (Curriculum and Instruction)

Not a bad haul; and all I had to pay for were the textbooks!

I had always looked at my time in the military as a means to an end - I just didn't foresee the end taking so long to finally arrive!

Good Day to You, Sir
