Try Every Day #9
I don’t cherish objects. I’ve never really been a sentimental person. I cherish memories and experiences. That being said, my dog tags mean a great deal to me. They represent one of the hardest challenges I’ve overcome in my life and looking at them floods me with amazing memories.
I wore them with pride and honor for four years of service and many years following. This particular set. I never lost them. I never replaced them. They were with me through some of the brightest and darkest days. They are the closest thing I have to a magical talisman and if I had to save something from my house, I’d have a hard time picking something else.
