I just retired from the Army, after 22 years and 26 days…not that anybody is counting. I am officially finished. It feels so weird to never have to put the uniform on again, it is definitely bittersweet. I’m growing my beard now ( I named it “retirement beard" don’t know if that is a thing or not) just to see how long I can go until it is obnoxious and uncomfortable.
The Army taught me so many things. It taught me how to be a trustworthy and dependable person, it taught me discipline and teamwork. It was the father that I didn’t have growing up.
The Army instilled confidence and strength in me, which I didn’t even know that I had. Hell, I jumped out of airplanes, repelled off of mountains and got to see the world.
I had a fairly successful career and the best part was that I had a great time. I met some bad ass people that I will never forget (namely my wife, Katie).
It also drove me to my current passion of photography. Specifically, wedding photography… Who would have thought that an Airborne Ranger and recently retired First Sergeant would want to pursue wedding photography. Who knew?!?
So now that I’m officially retired, I have recently started my business as a Fayetteville Wedding Photographer.
