I never left really.I WAS gonna go into the Army because I need a steady job to support my family.Well....I FINALLY got a steady job and decided not to join after all(money is too good) I've been kinda embarrased to post my decision not to go for a while now.(Tate emailed me asking how was the military was); and I guess now is the best time to tell everyone that I didn't go.I appolgize to ALL of you who have stood behind me for my not commiting and following through.I'm sure plenty of you will flame me for not going when I said I would.For what it's worth,I'll take all of y'alls negitive comments of my character and will not retalliate (sp) (edited to say that I deserve it)

I don't think anyone can rightfully criticize a man for doing what he feels is best for his family. That's a nobrainer. Welcome back.

Sorry you couldn't go or decided not to, it seems like something that will weigh on you. At least you were man enough to own up to not doing it.

It's your and your family life,better to be owned by your family,than the Army. You have given your countries required commitment,now get on with your life. Good to see you back. Bob [beer] [:D]

I thought about joining the army, but only after I was married and had a kid. I would have probably done it had I been single, but I would be making about 1/5th of the money I make now and I wouldn't want to put my family on welfare so I can play G.I. Joe. There's no shame in that decision.
