I want to Thank you Mark,
I was Tenured out of the Navy in 2003. I had a modest pension and medical coverage for life but no more direction for my career. Receiving your invitation letter was strange but curious and after much debate I returned it to start my learning processes.
Fast forward several years my outward appearance to the world hasn’t changed. I still live in the same house, have a little bit better job but not much, and I drive the same car. However I am extremely happy!
My focus has been on my family and just last night my son, my wife and my son’s girlfriend were talking about her going to school for her career and my wife was worried about what she chose and my son spoke up that even though it would be difficult it was Okay because it was her passion!
While my son has not read the heirlooms I have incorporated a number of the advantages into my own personnel philosophy which are carrying over now to my son and he is an extremely happy college student pursuing his dreams.
If there is one point to be made it is that no matter how old you are, you can still be happy chasing your dreams if you understand how life works!
