Many hope for a cure to COVID-19, others hope simply to wait it out. However, one thing is certain, we are all ready to get back to normal. To pass the time, we polled a group of around 100 Veterans about where are they going first when all this is said and done. We have listed the top five most popular/frequent answers.
Number 5: "Your mom's house."
Haha real mature guys. Our Moms are sweet ladies, NEXT!
Number 4: Go to see family
Sometimes we take family for granted. This is never more apparent than when you can't see them for a while. Extra sympathy goes out to dual military marriages. Some couples are halfway around the world from each other. Also we miss the family dog (insert some military name like Remington or Kabar).
Number 3: The beach
As a result of being home, traveling to exotic places was a very popular answer. However, most of these locations had one thing in common, they were coastal. The thought of wearing nothing but silkies and sipping a pina colada somewhere in the Florida Keys is tantalizing. Don't forget the sun block, after quarantine we all are gonna pasty.
Number 2: Sweet lovin'
Distance makes the heart grow fonder. Of course going to see your romantic partner would be a popular answer. No one would blame you for wanting to bolt directly to your gal or man-friend back home. Hey, whatever you're into, you'll get no judgment from us- as long as it's legal. We knew one guy back in boot camp who was in love with a palm tree so...yikes.
Number 1: The bar
It's one thing to drink at home alone, it's another to go out. We miss our favorite watering hole, and our favorite bush to pass out in. It's a time honored tradition of making new friends, then getting so plastered you forget where your pants are. Just make sure you don't get so hammered your first time out that you commit the cardinal sins of drinking and driving, or texting your ex.In order for this to happen we all need to do our part to "flatten the curve" so to speak. This means using some of that self-discipline to social distance, practice good habits and wait for this COVID-19 mess to blow over. We can't wait to see you guys at the next Grunt Style party, but leave us a comment of where you are going first!
