Back in August of 2016 I penned a column titled, “It’s really true; you can’t go home again.” In it, I wrote about the day I arrived home after three years spent in Air Force blue, including a year spent in far away Iceland.

I was filled with joy that day as I waved goodbye to an Air Force buddy who dropped me off in New London on his way home to another small Connecticut town. As soon I had hugged Mom and Pop I jumped on the telephone, smiling as I looked forward to hearing the voices of my old friends.
