I dont think my wife would like to watch me get my face busted up though
Believe it or not, I was not a big fan of Hughes at first. He seemed cocky and a bit concieted. However, I have begun to form a great respect for him. He is a Godly man that has confidence and he is a professional. Probably the best pound for pound MMA fighter ever. I look up to him and I am finding that I do have a lot in common with him. I wish him the best in his next fight and many of us over here in the sandbox will be pulling for him.
All the best,
Welcome to the board Frank. My name is Kyle I've been deployed 2 times to iraq and the second one I was Medivac out which I was upset about.....Than they threw me in another unit that was getting ready to deploy again while I was still undergoing treatment.....The Brigade Surgeon seen what I was getting treated for, and moved me to another unit (WTU)...you probably know what that is. But I was 3 weeks out to going on my 3rd tour.That made me upset too B/C I feel like I abandon my friends that I had in this unit. Now I'm stuck here in FT. Carson and im not sure what the heck going to happen to me. I am a tanker(19K) in the Army but I may not be able to stay in this MOS anymore.
good luck over there and make it back safe.
