Two years, too quickly

Today marks two years from my end of service date from the Army. The time has gone by too quickly and a lot has happened  which I will leave out of this post for the sake of brevity. I would however, like to to take thank all of the great leaders and Soldiers who helped shape the individual I am today and apologize to any of my Soldiers I may have let down or whose standards I failed to live up too — I will remember you all for as long as I live.

“It doesn’t matter what you do. If you’re a broom sweeper, be the best damned broom sweeper you can be. Everything else will fall into place from there.” – 1SG Pendleton

    That quote by 1SG Pendleton reminds me of a quote that Martin Luther King, Jr, stated,

    “If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep the streets even as Michelangelo painted or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, “Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”

    I am not sure if you were familiar with this quote, but I shared it just in case.

    Keep doing what you do. 🙂 Have a good night!

    Best Wishes,

    Howard
