My Memorial Day Reflections
I was up at 0400 yesterday morning to catch a 0630 flight to JFK to take some meetings this week with Maxim magazine and USAA. SOFREP will be formally partnering with Maxim as a military content provider, I’m excited to build this relationship and also grateful to have such an incredible partner in USAA.
As I pulled into the airport parking lot, I drove down to the fence, and parked. The drive to the airport in San Diego is one I’ve made a hundred times, but when I finally stopped the jeep and disengaged my internal autopilot (the one that got me there without much recollection), it hit me like an explosive concussion. A few yards to my right, in this same parking lot last September, was where I learned, with a single text message, that my best friend Glen Doherty was gone from my life. I glanced over and tried to hold back the emotions, but they just overcame me, and there was nothing I could do about it. It actually felt good to grieve a bit more. Anyone who’s lost someone special knows what I’m talking about.
