This is hopefully the first of many entries.
I have faced some challenges in the past couple of years. Several of my closest friends have passed away, one by murder. I've been very ill and have only recently begun to recover, but am feeling better than ever. I've embarked on new voyages, new directions and new objectives; all of which are both scary and exciting. I've begun to realize how many friends I have out there and how much my family has supported me and done for me.
I love you all.
This marks a new beginning. One where SFC Ray Burch will finally step down and relinquish control to the chaos that is Brother Bones. Unexpected decisions based on passion and desire rather than cold analysis. It's going to be a great ride and I invite you all to join me.
Sincerely Ray "Brother Bones" Burch
