For those of you interested in how Wes has done since his discharge. . . it has been a long and rough road for him. He fell into a deep depression and still fights off bouts of it. Since his discharge he tried to pick up the pieces but ran into wall after wall, there just wasn't anything in the job front for anyone. He moved to Iowa where his grandparents lived and landed acouple jobs that only let him go just before the probationary period drew near (they didn't want to pay benefits). He recently moved back to NC and had a plan, I helped him to realise his plan by doing the paper shuffling. All said and done Wes should be starting college Jan. 6, 2011. My hopes are high for him now :) I believe college will get him reconnected with people his age and he can restart his life again as a civilian.
Thank you to those of you that have sent messages now and then in support :). They helped me stay strong for Wes! May you all be having a Merry Christmas and may God Bless YOU!!
