This evening I enjoyed dinner out at Olive Garden on Washington Rd with my husband, SFC Justin MacEwen – US Army retired, and family. Today is the official start of his retirement from the US Army. I know this is a big change for him, since he has been in the military for over 18 years now. He served two tours in Kuwait and Iraq and due to a back injury sustained during his second tour he was medically retired. I am very proud of him and his service to our country.
While this is a bitter sweet moment and a life changing event, we now get to look forward to being a little settled and get a chance to establish roots in a community! The great thing about the Augusta and the CSRA is the proximity to Fort Gordon. Hopefully he will get a chance to enjoy some of the perks offered at Fort Gordon. He has always enjoyed shooting and hopefully now he can take the time to enjoy the offerings at the outdoor shooting range on post. They recently remodeled this facility and it now houses the Fort Gordon Sportman’s Club. He has always wanted to try skeet or trap shooting. Luckily he is getting to take a little time off before he starts his new career on post.
He plans on helping me update the blog with some facts about Fort Gordon so you will be hearing from him soon!
