Tom Note: I offer this note here from my friend, Army Maj. D.J. Skelton, because I have learned a lot from following his ups and downs as he deals with the multi-year consequences of being grazed in the head by a rocket-propelled grenade in Iraq.
My apologies for my silence/absence for awhile. Quick update for those who are inquiring and have been trying to contact me unsuccessfully:
I recently found out I require another major surgery on my mouth to fix two growing holes in my palate. Needless to say I’m pretty exhausted and emotionally drained from the never ending surgeries.
