New journey ahead

Originally posted 2014-05-29 16:26:26. A new journey awaits. My husband finished his CDL class and is officially a licensed commercial driver, well at least on paper. He just needs to find the right job/company. We live in NC so hopefully he can find one he likes and can help him adjust to civilian life.
