So, what does it mean to be an official “civilian?” In the world of the military, being a “civilian” usually means to have retired from the military. This time around, I was shy of 5 years to retire! Everyone looked at me crazy, but I knew it was my time to leave.
Aside from leaving my military career on December 5, 2011, I’m also done with my civilian career for the moment! Yay! I spent the week of spring break in beautiful Kailua-Kona, Hawaii coordinating our annual HPPUD Coalition Meeting. It was all work and no play. However, I did enjoy spending my time with my neighbor island friends. It was an amazing backdrop to end my civilian career for a season.
Now I’m focusing on completing my degree in Journalism and looking forward to closing this 10 plus years in this chapter of college!
Here we go!
