Two years ago I flew back home to Calgary, Canada to have my release dinner from the military.
Never in a million years would I think I’d sustain an injury that would have me medically released from the job I love. This was not my plan. This was not what I wanted.
This pendant was an amazing gift from my platoon. I absolutely LOVE it. I wasn’t expecting it at all and I was speechless receiving it.
Serving as a Military Police Officer this is the emblem that represents all the MPs.
The photo of the group is everyone who came to support me at my release dinner. It was an amazing experience to be around people who have been there during my time in my military career or even there for small clumps of time during it. I will truly miss everyone. I’m truly devastated that my injury has pushed me out before my time. ❤️️ 🇨🇦
Reflecting back on my release dinner today. I remember feeling bitter sweet. My service time in the Canadian Forces, Military Police was one of the most challenging yet wonderful experiences of my life. 🇨🇦.
Glad I was blessed to be surrounded by such supportive men and women then and at my dinner.
Sometimes I wonder where I’d be if I didn’t receive this back injury. Where would that career lead me? Who else would I have met?
But I am loving my life to the fullest and love all the people I get to meet here in the USA 🇺🇸. It’s been a different road than expected but it’s been amazing and I’m loving my life.
