I joined the 12th back in 1978. They had a unit in Lubbock, TX that I was slotted to go to as an 11F. They even had a slot for me to attend the O&I school, but I got medical boarded for a back injury while on active duty. This Army medical officer asked me a couple questions as part of the review after looking at the x-rays and reading the physician's report. She wanted to know if I was married and I said yes. She wanted to know if I wanted to have kids and I said yes. She then poked me in the waist just below the belt line and said "then don't jump out of any more airplanes. One hard landing and you'll be dead from there down.". I gotta tell you - that got my attention. Anyway, I was released from the unit after making a couple drills.

God whispers in your soul and speaks to your mind.
Sometimes when you don't have time to listen, He has to throw a brick at you.
It's your choice: Listen to the whisper, or wait for the brick.
