Retirement from the military is a love-hate affair. On one side, the soldier has this sweet-baby-Jesus moment where he/she is happy to be no longer bound to strict military laws and routine. On the other, he/she will sorely miss the lifelong friendships and structured work-ethic of the military. Either way, its good news for the friends and family who have missed their soldier on long deployments and training. The wife is especially thankful to the good lord for no more deployments and PCS!
