A New Beginning

Every end brings a new beginning. I had dinner with the wife last night. It was a bad sight. I slowly ate and sobbed, not able to really say anything. After about 15 minutes of that, we eventually started talking, and I slowly got angry. I quit crying, which was good. Then, I started to ...

War. What Is It Good For?

The time for graduating had come and gone. I was shipped out a short 3 weeks later. The moment of swear-in was of great significance and impact. I don’t remember much, but I do remember these lines: “I, Kevin Charles Wagenseller, do solemnly swear to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of ...
