Finally, my release message has come in for the military!!! My retirement leave starts 09 Oct, but I can change that as soon as my house sells. We can't put the house up just yet, as the contractors who built a house beside us have to fix our front lawn and driveway first (they had to dig them up to get to the water main). But it's all starting to fall into place now, and the move back to Whitehorse feels closer!!!

    Congrats Kelly,
    Wishing you the very best as you deserve every bit of it!
  • Kelly, that's awesome!!! Hopefully it all comes together quickly.
  • Kelly, I'm very happy for you that things are coming together.
    When you get back to Whitehorse, do you have a specialist already set up there to take over your care?

  • That is great news. It is good to hear something positive about people on here once in awhile. I am sure your service was appreciated as much as we appreciate our military men and women here in the states. I hope things in your life continue to go well from here.
  • That's some fantastic news!

  • It always looks great with a new driveway and lawn bonus and ta neighbors for having to put up with the noise of construction. Also if you have a chimney and their house is taller they have to build up your chimney. Congrats on your military retirement I know it can be a tough realization too and thanks for our service. Sorry you have to move way up in Whitehorse though I hope you're happy there. Charry

  • Thanks everyone!! I'm pretty excited, it's definitely time to move on and start my new life, I've felt stuck in limbo the past 3 years!

    Charry, LOL, I'm moving back to Whitehorse by choice, loved it when I was there before. It really is the perfect place to enjoy retirement, and there's actually a huge retired military community there. It's just so quiet and peaceful, and beautiful being surrounded by mountains!
