    Don't feel sorry, Ranger.

    We all 'graduate' eventually ... whether it's 17 years or 30! :D

    ...and you'll always be a soldier. Hoooaaahhh! :thumbup:

    Looking forward with interest to seeing more knives by Spencer Reiter.

    It's now my turn to chime in. Having had a brother retire from the army national guard in Ohio recently, I know the sacrifices that you and your family have made to serve the rest of us. I thank you sincerely for making those sacrifices for my family and I. I've already said a prayer on your behalf that you're new ventures are successful and joyful. Good luck to you and yours!

    Ranger, how the hell did you get cursed with having that Medac patch????

    Every once in a while I go to ArmyRanger.com (might be a good place to sell your wares since you are Ranger Qualified)!
    Don't feel strange, it happens!! The military is temperary!!
    Good luck!

    looks like you get the otherside of life now,
    make your own hours, stay around home, now your the boss :)

    Seems well deserved, after serving for all americans

    its unfortunate you cant serve, but im sure you can find a way to help if you want to

    Thank you and welcome back. Good looking knives, you should have no trouble making it full time.

    It takes time, but you will get used to life outside the service.
