Sorry for your loss. RIP Travis.

Age? Family?

I had a friend come home from Iraq about four years ago who wrecked his SUV and died after an alcohol fueled fight with his brother. I think the war does something to you.

I feel sympathy for the family, the friends and the drivers traumatized by the dead person's disregard for anyone else's safety or feelings. The individual on the motorcycle was a grown man who made some very bad decisions and is responsible for the pain caused by his passing. Its a sad situation, but I just cannot feel bad for the guy on the bike. I see drunk idiots on motorcycles, or just idiots on motorcycles way too often and I have the pleasure of picking them up off the road and taking them and sometimes them and their assorted pieces to the hospital. I feel the same way about people in cars doing the same irresponsible , like the lady that killed her 6 year old cousin the other night when she drove drunk. I do not really care if people are offended by my view, I just am tired of seeing people die due to their own choices, I have lost track of the number who could have lived had they used their head just a little bit.

When you watch many of the war movies and it shows the members coming home and having a hard time adjusting to home / civlian life, isn't just for Hollywood.
Service members become "Institutionalized", you spend long hours, days on end with like minded people sharing simular goals. Where life is about surviving the mission, the day, the month. You are dying to feel the comfort of your family, your friends and home cooked meals and the ability to go to any store to purchase what ever you need. The ability to spend the weekend not on watch, training or in the field takes some time getting used to. When you get home, you can't talk to your buddies like you talk to your fellow service member. Finding things to talk about when , they don't understand your acronyms, your "Sea / Duty" stories are funny to you, but become "I guess you had to be there" to understand what your are talking about.
At the same time you are going through all of this, you spend a lot of time trying to live by "What happened on the Beach / Underway, stays on the Beach / Underway. So you don't want to talk about it, or cant talk about and a lot gets bent up inside.
I spent two years up in Boston on a ship. I was able to come visit my family for a week or two about every three months (pending work load). It has taken my over a year to get used to being home with my family on a daily basis. My friends that I enjoy the most to be around, are other service members...
Now to get back on point.... You become so used to living on your toes, ready to jump into the next task, mission or just survive the one you are on. Everyday life is so boring to us. When you have been through all this, you find ways to try to "break out" of that shell, or find / build new memories. We usually use adventurous and exciting activities or we turn to alcohol. Saddly sometimes the activites or alcohol, put us in bad situations or worse...

I exit 290 before 43rd on my daily commute. I made the mistake of riding to work Wednsday morning and the roads were still wet, so I can imagine how it was earlier that night. I count my blessings that my only complaint is having to wash my bike this weekend.

We all make choices. Be safe, live long and prosper. I'd rather be putt-putting on Geezer Glide when I am 75, if it means one less wheelie now on I-45.

Ride eternal in bike heaven, Travis.

Alot of service men are killed in motorcycle related accidents stateside , between 130-200 a year. No one can fathom what those boys see and do over there, and adjustment to stateside life is almost impossible, especially when they know they are going right back. Something has to fill that adrenaline void, something has to quiet the nightmares.

RIP Travis, if only you were still here.
