This past Tuesday…3 years ago… I Married my Best Friend…

I never really understood that saying…

I would always see people put stuff up on FaceBook… “10 Years Ago I Married My Best Friend…”

I’m not even close to fully understanding that saying… But I’m starting to get it… Starting to feel it…

This is how my “Messed Up Head” thinks of it…

Guys… You got your Boys, your Brothers….

Ladies… You got your Girls, your Sisters…

And no matter the Gender, we all do some really stupid stuff! Some days/nights it might be one of your Boys or Girls… Some days/nights it might be YOU!

But no matter what, you do whatever you can do to take care of that person because you know that they would do whatever they could do to take care of you.

At the end of the day, you will always have your TRUE FRIEND’S BACK! No matter what! If you don’t… Well then…  Find some new friends…

Danielley and I met at a very awkward time… I was in The Marine Corps… ‘Nuff Said…

She lived in Riverside and I was Stationed in 29 Palms… I’m sure the majority of you know how hard “Long Distance” Relationships can be…

But, I fell in love…

And on November 27th, 2004… Sitting in my Barracks… Talking on the phone with her… I told her…

“I Love You…” She said it back to me… And that’s a date that we consider we were a “couple”.

So I made it work… My schedule as an Aircraft Rescue FireFighter was 3 Days On… 2 Days Off… I’m sure you can guess where I spent those 2 Days Off…

But then… I got Orders for my 2nd Deployment to Iraq…  Which I Volunteered  For…

Now that… Is a “Long Distance” Relationship… She lived in Riverside… I fought in Al Fallujah and Ramadi…

But I was still in love… We were still in love…

I’m sure this is nothing new to any Military personnel, but I was literally counting down the seconds until I could home to her…

To my Family…

I had 2 CDs with me out there… One was a Taking Back Sunday CD and one was a Red Jumpsuit Apparatus CD…

On the Taking Back Sunday CD, I’ll never forget these Lines…

“See The Months They Don’t Matter… It’s The Days I Can’t Take… When The Hours Move To Minutes… And I’m Seconds Away…”

And it’s true… Yes… Everyday was a struggle… Praying that not only myself, but every Marine that I was in charge of made it home safe… Praying that Danielley and all my Friends and Family were safe back home… Then a Month goes by, then 2 Months, then 3 Months… Next thing you know, 8 Months go by and you’re 1 Month away from GOING HOME… 1 Day Feels Like A Month… 1 Week Feels Like A Year… The Final Flight Home Feels Like Your Entire Military Career…

My Unit, Marine Wing Support Squadron 374, landed at March Air Force Base… We hopped onto Buses… We literally drove right past my house and made our way back to 29 Palms… I wish I had pictures… My Family left me Posters with the lyrics of this song all the way up to 29 Palms… Perfect song because I literally got home, “When September Ends…”

We arrived… I got off the Bus… Only to run into the arms of my Family… And Danielley…

I have no clue what it was/is you see in me, but, I promise to protect, cherish and love you for the rest of our lives…

You’re My Heart and W.L.Y.M.T.M?

“I Love You Danielley… Happy Anniversary…”

And here’s The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus song… Our Wedding Song…

When I see your smile…
Tears roll down my face I can’t replace…
And now that I’m strong I have figured out…
How this world turns cold and it breaks through my soul…
And I know I’ll find deep inside me I can be the one…

I will never let you fall…
I’ll stand up with you forever…
I’ll be there for you through it all…
Even if saving you sends me to heaven…

It’s okay… It’s okay. It’s okay…
Seasons are changing…
And waves are crashing…
And stars are falling all for us…
Days grow longer and nights grow shorter…
I can show you I’ll be the one…

I will never let you fall…
I’ll stand up with you forever…
I’ll be there for you through it all…
Even if saving you sends me to heaven…

Cuz you’re my, you’re my, my, my true love, my whole heart…
Please don’t throw that away…
Cuz I’m here for you…
Please don’t walk away and…
Please tell me you’ll stay woah, stay…

Use me as you will…
Pull my strings just for a thrill…
And I know I’ll be okay…
Though my skies are turning gray…

I will never let you fall…
I’ll stand up with you forever…
I’ll be there for you through it all…
Even if saving you sends me to heaven…
