I guess this makes it official... I received this in the mail today. It's official now, they can never recall me to active duty again...
It sure took them a while to get it to me! I mean, it's not like they couldn't find me. But hey, I got it and now it's offical! I'm, as they say down here in the south, retard navy! Hooray for me!

Congratulations. I always admire those who serve our country.
Andy, thanks for your military service. You're a hero. You did something that I wished I had done when I was younger. But the time for that has past and, to be truthful, sometimes I resent myself for it. I just wish I could have predicted the future, you know? Like, if I knew that I'd end up living 3,000 miles away from what I considered (and still consider) home, then I might have had the werewithal to serve. Hindsight, as they say, is 20-20. I believe it. Congrats, Andy. You are a great American.
