A Grunt that’s been stuck in traffic for the past 15+ years, it seems; from DC to SEA & Iraq, to back in The District. I love my Little Monsters more than life itself. Born Day: 4/20.
P.S.- My apparel brand is OFB: PeacefulTidings.com
Army Acronyms and Whatnot Vol. 7
7OCT2021; 2259, THU Almost exactly an hour before another R.E.D. Friday, and approx. 11 min til all the superstitious night owls begin making wishes for 11:11 PM. Since one of my main motivations is to see the random weekly holiday become mainstream, I figured why not finally bounce back to this series dedicated to my debriefing from the military?
Love letter #2
16SEP2021; 1436, THU Dear Cuzzo, If you can't tell from the envelope that I just completely butchered, this is most def a rough draft; and I sincerely apologize for that, as well as for my chicken scratch. I'm unquestionably out of practice and quite certainly rushing to drop this brief note in the box before the 1600 pick up.
Another random open letter
30AUG2021; 1625, MON Heyo! Praying you and yours are well and whatnot. I'm a (former) Grunt who goes by Dick; short for my fam name, Dickerson.
A random open letter...
15AUG2021; 1110, SUN Peaceful Tidings... ...And a Blessed SUN to you and yours! Praying that y'all are striving, thriving, and driving into y'all's ideals with fervor.

29JUL2021; 1120, THU Speaking of Star Wars tho, I'm pretty sure that this featured image might could win some sort of accolade for capturing such a large number of Padawans and Younglings, in a single still shot, accompanied by a couple of USA soldiers and a Stryker. "Long live the [Jedi order]."
Army Acronyms and Whatnot Vol. 5
20JUL2021; 2240, TUE It's almost another Buddy Check 22nd and we're in the waning minutes of the 10pm hour (aka 2200). Somehow, I only mentioned the roughly 22 Vets that commit suicide everyday in solely one of these debriefs; despite a completely different one being typed up and posted mid afternoon on a random 22nd of the month.
26JUL2021; 1540, MON This post is bittersweet for a myriad of reasons; not least of which that a life hangs in the balance. The lovely Lady pictured above has made some enemies among "untouchables" and I am deeply interested in ensuring that she lives a long, healthy life.
15JUL2021; 1635, THU The above snapshot is a damn near perfect microcosm for living in the DMV (DC, Md, Va) area. All the lights in my path are green and clear intersections; accept for the one that I just barely got caught at.
