wel after two years of waiting i finally got approved to reenlist into the air force. my heart condition is stable and controllable. so they cleared me to come back in. its looking like ill be Senior Airman Thomas on the 25th of this month. I cant wait, these last two years have been one heck of a struggle. Wish me and my family luck, we have no idea where we are going yet.

i hope i get travis because i grew up a few hours away in manteca, ca. but another part of me wants to still see the world. and it would be cool to play some ball with some of yall as it seems no one lives near me here in OKC.

go to dover, it's close to jersey. and good luck. i was thinking about being a fighter pilot for a while. I joined CAP, but i changed my mind cause i wanted to do something that could help more people ( become a neural molecular biologist and cure mental disorders/ expand the brains capacity). but i respect people who serve our country. so good luck
