I just submitted my last assignment for my Bachelor’s degree with Arizona State University.

I finally went back to school three years ago, at the age of 35, for the Spring ’14 semester. I’ve exhausted my G.I. Bill. I’ve taken 18 credit hour semesters. I made the Dean’s List every semester except for two in which I deployed to Afghanistan and couldn’t complete enough credit hours. I have a 3.85 GPA, and if I didn’t mess up the finals for my last two classes too badly I’m on track to graduate Summa Cum Laude.

After three years, it’s a weird feeling to realize I’m done. Now all I can do is sit here and wait two weeks until graduation.

I think I’m gonna go spend some more time with my wife and son. They’ve been exceedingly patient with me, and I want to spend every last minute with them.

  1. Bravo, Sir! Well done! After you spend some quality time with your family, there are some old friends who are dying to hear from you. I hope I am among those you grace with your time.

  2. Congrats Eric! Returning home from my 2nd tour I decided I was not looking forward to going back to being “the cable guy” so went to school. It took 4.5 years, and was dreadfully painful working full time and trying to have some sort of relationship with my wife. I graduated at 30 and agree completely, it’s weird looking down from the top. If you haven’t already, set new lofty goals and enjoy the climb sir! Hopefully we’ll hear about them here.
