Yesterday I attended a fundraiser for the Navy SEAL Monument that will be in the construction phase on the Virginia Beach boardwalk in the upcoming months. I was surrounded by a powerful fellowship of retired Navy SEALs, celebrating their appreciation and love of each other, fun times, good music, and the indescribable connection to each other within this special community. I met new friends and had a few laughs with old friends, with whom I met just a year ago. None of it felt foreign. I never felt out of place for one moment. It was one of the most amazing experiences I have had to date in this community, and these moments reinforce my resolve to continue serving these amazing men.
