    My best friend since the 4th grade, Apollo, returns from Afghanistan from his 2nd tour here in couple weeks. He's been with Special Forces pretty much since he's been in the military which is passing 7 years now. He's broken his back jumping out of planes, yet the Army still made him work so of course he's had back surgery with a bone transfussion and some screws. His girlfriend (now ex) cheated on him both times while he was fighting for our freedom, yet he keeps his head high. He's finally done with the Army, on the move in Bagdad, then his final flight from the sand box to be home for good.

    Sockmonkey (Greg) was kind enough to donate bedside decals (which I did however just use the punisher he created) for his truck which I picked up from his mom and put them on today. They came out awesome! I can't thank Greg enough, and I know Apollo is going to be stoke.

    He's not a member here, but let's show him some love and a huge welcome home after nearly 8 years of service (keep in mind he's my age at 24)

    Welcome home man, missed you and thanks for your service!

    Please tell your friend how grateful I am for his service. Most don't understand the sacrifice that's given to serve our country like Apollo has.
