A happy moment
My happy place looks like Waimea Bay, on the north shore of Oahu, running around the bay in the middle of the evening, with a full moon over the water and just the sound of the waves crashing in the otherwise silent evening.
For me, it was in the middle of one of my legs of the Perimeter Relay, a 7-person relay race around the island, about 133 miles. It was my first year at my unit in Hawaii, the 4/27th Infantry Battalion in the 25th ID(L). It’s a feeling, a sound, a sight I will never forget.
