Iron, I wish you the best in what ever choices you feel you need to make. I wish I had more guys like you under me, I'm sure you understand what I'm saying. We all feel there's a place in life we need to be, specially during these times we now face. I do wish you and your family the best, and hope you stay out of harms way my friend.

Just saw this now and I am still dazed. This is by far the toughest post I've had to write here at AnabolicMinds. Just cannot bring myself to saying "Goodbye"! Your absence will leave a vacuum here at AM and there at SoM. Yet, you are aiming at worthy goals. I have no doubt you will pursue them with your usual dedication and that you will prevail. I wish you the best of the very best. You will always remain an exceptional friend. You know how to reach me. My regards to Bradley.

All the best with your plans, its a shame to see such an outstanding rep step down, and even though i dont know you that well, you have my utmost respect, not only for your posts, and comments, and your ability to deal with people, but also for your conviction in protecting your country, take care my friend, Levi.

Damn, such kind words - It's much appreciated!
I'm going to tighten my Capt. boots, and whip some ass.
My overall goal was to make Major, so now it's a possible reality within 14 months.
I'm not leaving altogether, though. I will be around up until August, and then the chances of me checking in from where I will be might be tight. But, I have to get back downrange; too many of my men have perished for me to sit back and feel bad for myself. Something was taken from me, now I must return the favor. It's funny, my Great-Grandfather, Grandfather, and my Father all had 3 tours each in their respected eras; this will be my 4th, so I'm setting a new standard.
I'm not leaving for good. It's just that I need to focus everything that I have on getting my balance back, and learn to proficiently use my new hardware.
Ike – you know that you and I will forever have communications with each other. You’ve been a great friend since I’ve met you a few years back. I may even have a 2-4 week lay-over in Germany while heading to my destination, so that will give us a chance to have that pint.

It is with sadness that I see you leave the IBE team. Do what you must brother, and know that you have a community and many friends here. You've been a great friend to me as well. It's not goodbye, just a "See you later." Some things in life just take precedence. You'll be in my prayers...

I've learned so ridiculously much from you Lungz, and hope to see you around here in the future. I'm glad I made it back in time to help send you off. Best of luck in your recovery and your career/scholarly goals!
Stay safe, and kick some ass!

Good man, I had a feeling we would still have you around one way or another, good choice staying on to help out, it shows your character for sure.

Wish you the best of luck brother. Alot of our men have fallen and I strive everyday to help each and everyone make it through their time here and back home to see their families. It has been extremely tough the past couple of days here, but that is when the true "family traits" -if you will- come out.
You are one of the most kind and true hearted people on this board; along with knowing alot about your company. That says alot about someone. I might still be over here in August (hopefully not) but shoot me a line. I make it all around Iraq going from FOB to Base whenever the mission dictates my services are needed. God bless brotha!
PM me with any order questions and concerns

Doooooood... Wait, what?
Ha ha! Decisions decisions. Your motives are admirable my friend. Whatever you decide, you know the AM community backs you. We need more like you on this great planet we call earth.
Do what your heart is telling you that you've got to do my man. In this, you find completion.
