Sup Cinc, how you doing bro? I’m good. Hanging in there as best I could. I’ve been going to VA groups at Travis AFB every Friday. I love my brothers and sisters there I wish you can meet them and vice versa. Cuz I know they’re gonna love you just as much as I did. You already know I don’t like being on social media or any type of public forum, remember how you were forcing me to make a Facebook account so I could communicate with you and everyone on there? LoL You know me, I like to keep a low profile. It took me another long time to post something on another public forum, but I’m slowly getting better at it. Ok look, I’ll even say something exposing myself, “Yo! You done using the spank tank yet? No? Then hurry the hell up I got next. “ Sorry I don’t want to make your page dirty. Damn it I’ll stop saying sorry, sorry about that. I put the Battlefield cross on my black accord sport (It’s no real sports car so don’t go busting my balls about that) on my 6 cuz it’s for you, you always had my back. Next to it I put dog tags with the Afghanistan background for our time deployed there together back in 09 and our defenders logo at the feet. Holy shiatsu massage! I can’t believe it’s been 10 years already. Thanks showing me around Bagram. Wasn’t it crazy we both had the same day off? Thanks for shaving my head every day off too. Even tho I wasn’t good at shaving yours I at least got the back spots. Well, I’m about to knock out now bro, getting sleepy. It’s 0324 and I still can’t sleep. Just up reminiscing about all the good times we shared. Let’s get the boys and girls back together somehow that would be nice wouldn’t it bro? Ok then.. 20 minutes passes by.... “Good night Cinc, Good night Harvey, Good night Huddy, Good night New York.. Good night everybody..” You, “Good night Izzie”
