I did the same thing during the Viet Nam war. Tried my best to man up, but failed later in life.

Oh well, at least I am happy now.  :P

With a tour in Northern Ireland I'm guessing you were in the British Army. Which regiment?

I did an exchange and spent some time with some other officers from Coldstream, Royal Scottish, and Blues and Royals. Great time tons of fun and tons of learning.

Hi All!

I am currently in the Navy Reserves. Affiliated straight to the Reserves so no active duty other than my 2 deployments (Afghanistan and the UAE). I've been in for 12 years now.

Hey, BumbleBree! Thanks you for your service. :)

I was active duty myself (USN, 2005-2010).   Two WESTPACs took me to ABOT in Iraq, so I had some time in C5F, too,
It took over 40 years to realise, and believe, that what I am NOT, is a mistake.

(Yes, I'm a Canadian who served in the US Navy....)

Pleased to meet you, TSL! It's nice to meet someone else who's survived CENTCOM. Those tours have been the most confused of my career so far  :D.

Likewise! 

I was on a FFG....we were VERY much on the receiving end for said confusion. :)

Thank you all for your military service.

Chrissy
Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.
