Its been 10 years since I was first in Afghanistan. Tenth anniversaries are big milestones and there have been several of them this year. Today marks 10 years since my first alive day that I actually recognized.
I have written about this day many times on this blog, which you can find at http://bouhammer.com/?s=alive+day
You can also read the original posting about this day at http://bouhammer.com/2006/09/twenty-five-feet-made-the-difference/
As mentioned in some of the other posts, Scooter and I still stay in contact and we are still bonded by this day, and by the 25′ that made a difference in us being here today.
