A huge training opportunity just fell through for me. I'm pretty bummed out, but still optimistic about my future. Any of you ever mess up something big but still manage to pull off something awesome?

That sucks, I'm sorry to hear it. Keep working hard!

Created an account just to comment on this. Fact is, that's going to happen to you--more than a few times--over the years. More opportunities will come and the difference on whether or not you can make them work will be patience and your attitude. Yeah, it sucks and it's okay to think it sucks, just saying, "Screw it, on to the next" and moving on with the knowledge of how you screwed up the first time can act as a roadmap for you to make it work the next time.

Thank you. I'm thankful for what I learned, both about being a better soldier, and about myself as a man. I know that this experience will help me going forward.
