A Quote from Josh Krueger
“I have never really been asked what it feels like to “come home” after being deployed or serving in the military… So therein lies the struggle with “coming home”, the military, brotherhood, and deployments was my home and I never intended on leaving.”
I have witnessed the power of the brotherhood that exists in the military. It is capable of a great many things. To form this outside of the military will leave us all with a family that will be willing and capable of handling any mission in life.
