20 years ago, YHC met his high school sweetheart and soulmate. 14 years ago, YHC put a ring on the M two weeks after graduating from VMI. YHC has been a work in progress, and remains eternally grateful and devoted to the M for her patience and strength. By the Grace of God, the man you know today as DTH has been returned to the forge too many times to recall, every time emerging stronger. This Thursday, YHC will Q at the Forge, ready to harden those PAX who see their purpose and strength as designed for Greater things. 

Kudos to SCRUM for pushing hard through the 14’s this morning, and T claps to my my 2nd Life Partner WOJO for crushing it on the rails – was he a former gymnast or something!? Way to TRY HARD fellas!
