I don’t really have a lot of exciting things to share in today’s post, except a personal victory that I am excited about. This last weekend I completed my last sexual assault prevention and awareness briefing. In the last year I have trained 1800 Soldiers on this topic and Sunday morning (of all times) I finished my last unit who had returned from a year long deployment the day before. This was also the first time that Don heard me speak, he came along and took a few photos, which really aren’t that good but at least you have a glimpse into my world for the last year.
This job has been like nothing I have ever done in my life. I just don’t have the type of personality it takes to be a part of the armed forces, but here I am working with the Army of all branches! There have been many days when I have asked myself, how did you get here?!? You know the saying fish out of water…yup that’s me!
My time working at a group home taught me that I can do anything for a year, and this job has been an example of that. I am grateful for the opportunity I have had and the people I have met as a result.
That’s all, I guess I just needed to process that and decided to use this as a forum for that!
P.S. Now that I am no longer working in this position, I will not be on call 24/7. Don and I are already planning a trip to Paris, so there will be more intersting topics in the future!
