    It is official. I am being medically discharged from the Army, most likely (about 95% sure) going to be medically retired. Please pray for my family as we go through this transition.

    Since I've joined the military, it's become a big part of me, and in a lot of ways helps define who I am. It's going to be a big change.

    As of right now, the plan is to move to Arkansas where my family is, and for me to attend UALR and major in Physics with an emphasis in education.

    It’s a scary transition, and you and your family will be in my prayers. I start TDY/Transitional Leave on 13 May (and a new job on the 14th…can’t afford to take time off) and I know it will be a big change.

    My brother just retired in January but he's right back on base now working as a civilian. :) I pray that the transition for you is smooth!
