I've had the song "War Was in Color" stuck in my head the last two days.
My buddy from high school, Zippy, just retired from the Army after 16 years.
My brother in law retired over a year ago after 20.

For a while in Junior and Senior year of highschool, I entertained the idea of attending Norwich University, if they would have me. Maybe if there had been some parental encouragement, I would have pursued it harder, but I was their baby girl, and it wasn't discouraged, but it wasn't encouraged either. I think they breathed a sigh of relief when I stopped talking about it.

I've always half regretted not serving in some military capacity. Sometimes I wonder where I'd be now if I hadn't just let it go.
Maybe halfway around the world.
Maybe dead.

But that is a young person's path. And while I don't have a foot in the grave yet, there's days where it's very apparent I'm no longer that person. You can't dwell on the couldabeens, but every once in a while they sneak up on you.
