Occupation: U.S Navy Aircraft Mechanic, now Ex-Navy.
Been on active duty for 10 years. Recently released from Military Service with an Honorable Discharge.
P.S: Yes, my time is pretty limited, even being on the injured roster as I am right now (Pending knee surgury). If you e-mail me or PM me, or even review my work, I'd be very grateful.
Knee surgury is over and done with. They did it orthoscopically, so they didn't need to hack my knee apart to fix the damage. Found out that I'll be under going physical therapy for a few months and might be medically retired from military service, depending on how my medical review board goes. Other than that, kids and wife are doing fine and everythings else is going alright. Friends are going through some drama, but that's a different story.
I just saw this message and it brought back memories from when I was younger. I wish to pass this along to all the other guys out there in hopes that none of you get stuck like this.
I almost did so many years ago before I met the woman who is now my wife. To all of you young and/or single guys and gals, please...be careful.
Girls Don't Realize These Things
But most of all
Ladies always complain and gripe to their friends that there is never any good guys out there, and they always end up with assholes who mistreat them. Well ladies, next time you're complaining, maybe look up to see who you're complaining to, maybe that special someone is right there hanging on your every word as usual, screaming in his head "Why won't you give me a chance?"
If you're a guy and you agree with this letter, copy and paste into your profile as 'I'm sorry'
If You're one of the FEW girls with enough BALLS to copy and paste this into your profile, and you would never make your guy feel this way, copy and paste into your profile as 'Girls Don't Realize These Things
I got this from Wikipedia, but I was wondering how many of the Heavenly Virtues Naruto embodies, along with the others in Narutoverse. For instance, Rock Lee embodies Diligence and Hinata embodies Charity. However, the same holds true for the Seven Deadly Sins. Sasuke embodies Wrath, Pride, and Envy.
Chastity Lat. Chastitas - Sub-Categories : Purity, Knowledge, Wisdom, Honesty.
Abstaining from sexual conduct according to one's state in life; the practice of courtly love and romantic friendship. Cleanliness through cultivated good health and hygiene, and maintained by refraining from intoxicants. To be honest with oneself, one's family, one's friends, and to all of humanity. Embracing of moral wholesomeness and achieving purity of thought-through education and betterment. The ability to refrain from being distracted and influenced by hostility, temptation or corruption.
Temperance Lat. Temperantia - Sub-Categories : Self-control, Justice, Honor, Abstention
Restraint, temperance, justice. Constant mindfulness of others and one's surroundings; practicing self-control, abstention, moderation, zero-sum and deferred gratification. Prudence to judge between actions with regard to appropriate actions at a given time. Proper moderation between self-interest, versus public-interest, and against the rights and needs of others.
Charity Lat. Caritas - Sub-Categories : Will, Benevolence, Generosity, Sacrfice
Generosity, charity, self-sacrifice; the term should not be confused with the more restricted modern use of the word charity to mean benevolent giving. In Christian theology, charity -- or love (agäpé) -- is the greatest of the three theological virtues.
Love, in the sense of an unlimited loving kindness towards all others, is held to be the ultimate perfection of the human spirit, because it is said to both glorify and reflect the nature of God. In its most extreme form, such love can be self-sacrificial. Confusion can arise from the multiple meanings of the English word "love". The love that is "caritas" is distinguished by its origin – being divinely infused into the soul – and by its residing in the will rather than emotions, regardless of what emotions it stirs up. This love is necessary for salvation, and with it no one can be lost.
Diligence Lat. Industria - Sub-Categories : Persistance, Effort, Ethics, Rectitude
A zealous and careful nature in one's actions and work; decisive work ethic, steadfastness in belief, fortitude, and the capability of not giving up. Budgeting one's time; monitoring one's own activities to guard against laziness. Upholding one's convictions at all times, especially when no one else is watching (integrity).
(The vice "acedia" is more commonly known as "sloth".)
Patience Lat. Patientia - Sub-Categories : Peace, Mercy, Ahimsa, Sufferance
Forbearance and endurance through moderation. Resolving conflicts and injustice peacefully, as opposed to resorting to violence. The ability to forgive; to show mercy to sinners. Not killing or being violent in any way to any life form or sentient being; to practice moderation of meat consumption and consistent life ethic. Creating a sense of peaceful stability and community, rather than engendering suffering, hostility and antagonism.
Kindness Lat. Humanitas - Sub-Categories : Satisfaction, Loyalty, Compassion, Integrity
Charity, compassion and friendship for its own sake. Empathy and trust without prejudice or resentment. Unconditional love and voluntary kindness without bias or spite. Having positive outlooks and cheerful demeanor; to inspire kindness in others.
Humility Lat. Humilitas - Sub-Categories : Bravery, Modesty, Reverence, Altruism
Modest behavior, selflessness, and the giving of respect. The courage of the heart necessary to undertake tasks which are difficult, tedious or unglamorous, and to graciously accept the sacrifices involved. Reverence for those who have wisdom and those who selflessly teach in love. Giving credit where credit is due; not unfairly glorifying one's own self. Being faithful to promises, no matter how big or small they may be. Refraining from despair and the ability to confront fear and uncertainty, or intimidation.
This is the list and explainations I got from Wikipedia. For the Sins, look them up on Wikipedia. Both lists are very informative.
Hey, y'all! I'm FINALLY on Terminal Leave! That means that this is my final thirty days in the military, capping off a 10 year career in the U.S Navy. Just a re-cap, I went to RTC Great Lakes for Boot Camp. From there, I went to Pensacola, Florida, where I was injured in a training accident at NACCS, where I was training to become a SAR member. I was sent from there to VF-103 in Oceana, Virginia, where I picked up my Rating and participated in the Afghanistan Campaign. From there, I next went to VFA-192 in NAF Atsugi, Japan, where I stayed for three years and fought in the Iraq War. On board the USS Kitty Hawk, we were among the first to respond to the call to arms. Next, I went to VFA-151 in NAS Lemoore, California. I went on a single cruise with them, then transferred to VFA-125, just down the street. After a couple of years with them, they were de-commed and became VFA-122, bringing us to this very day. It's been a very long decade for me, but it's interesting!
Just because I'm a vet now doesn't mean I won't still honor my brothers and sisters, both alive and fallen, on this sacred day. To all those who lost someone in war or who have someone over in the shit now, my prayers are with you. I have a friend, SSgt. Matthew Meek, who is still active in the Army Mechinized Infantry. Bro, if you can read this, Godspeed and be safe.
