have you ever wondered

when we enlisted we missed home. when we slept in bashas we missed coyline. when we slept in shellscrapes we missed our bashas. when it sweltered outfield we missed the rain. when our shellscrapes became watery graves we missed the sun. when we went to bmt we missed having our own rooms. when we went to ocs we missed the 14-strong bunk parties. when we donned sbo we missed pt kit. when we picked up our field pack we missed sbo.

i’m starting to accept (albeit reluctantly) that epiphanies are necessarily belated…
