Today is Veteran's Day, and I want to take a moment and thank my favorite veteran for her service in the armed forces. Army Girl, as she's called on this blog, was (duh) in the Army for like 12 years. She did a bunch of amazing stuff. She travelled to amazing places, and fought for this country with bravery and patriotism, and a genuine desire to make the world a safer place.
Army Girl inspired her troops, inspired her colleagues, and loved every minute of her service in the Army.
Army Girl and her fellow soldiers put their lives on the line to protect our "freedom"
Army Girl got hurt while she was there, a couple of times kind of seriously. She never backed down, though. She's a bad ass.
Army Girl, to this day, loves the army more than anything. I've listened to her for hours telling story after story of her amazing experiences in the army. Not one of which, I might add, had anything to do with macking on chicks.
You see, Army Girl was kicked out of the Army for being gay. For no other reason than that. It's totally unfair. And it MAKES NO FUCKING SENSE. But I'm not going to say anything bad about the military today. Because Army Girl wouldn't like that.
Today, everyone should thank the veterans in their lives. And while you're at it, feel free to thank Army Girl, too.
I love you, Army Girl! Thanks for protecting America. Sorry America didn't protect you back.
Oh, and Army Girl? Please stop trying to get me to eat spam. It's never going to happen. Just accept it.
