Bold from It
The Tail of the Dragon, Deals Gap, North Carolina.
Boomerism: “The firefight isn’t always in the warzone. The battle of the mind is the hardest fight to ever win.”
The chill of fall is in the air. The mountains surround us as the sun begins to rise. It’s early … too early, but I need this time to myself. Today is bigger than I ever expected.
As a young boy, I thought about this day … all the time.
What would it feel like?
What would I think?
Would the ride be smooth?
Never in a million years could I have envisioned the reality of today.
I don’t really remember much about life before Boomer and the Hellions. Vague moments roll in and out of the deep recesses of my mind, but nothing stands out in a positive way until Nathan “Boomer” Vaughn came into our lives. He’s more than my dad, he’s the man I’ve always wanted to grow into.
My childhood before Boomer was the shit women teach their daughters to get out of. My mom fell in love with a monster and got in too deep. In order to leave she had to lose a baby and almost her life. Pamela Vaughn is the strongest woman I’ll ever know and I’m fortunate to call her mom.
Life is unpredictable.
I have known it for as long as I can remember. Honestly, it’s one of those things I feel like I simply came out of the womb prepared forthe unexpected. Does it make sense to be prepared for the unknown? Probably not, to most that is. If shit can go wrong, it will go wrong, period. My life is one upheaval to the next, at least in my formative years.
No matter what.
Every time the world goes topsy-turvy and tilts me on my axis, I simply adjust and continue on. Adapt and overcome, but never, ever crumble.
Life is funny. As children, we rush to grow up. As adults, we daydream about going back in time.
I remember thinking I had all the answers. Even though I knew something would go sideways because that was our life; I thought I had my future set.
As a teenager, I didn’t fight with my parents. In fact, even now, I respect the hell out of both of them without hesitation.
I don’t know when it all dawned on me, but it did. From the moment I decided to join the United States Armed Services, more specifically the Army, my future was set in my mind. I knew just how it would all be. Even though my very soul told me something would most certainly pop up, I never imagined it would all work out like it has. Whether one can say things are good or bad … well, I guess that’s on the individual’s perception. I
can say the situations like my family face now and before truly determine if a person is an optimist or a pessimist. Let me just say my brother is the most optimistic person I’ve ever encountered. His level of positive energy is infectious. Once upon a time, I thought the biggest stress my mother would face was the worry over my career. If only that had been all she really needed to worry with. A memory invades, and I let myself go back.
“Colt, you don’t have to do this,” my mom whispers as I see the panic build in her eyes. “I’m proud of you and the man you’re growing into, but you don’t have to risk it all.”
I beam with pride. For the first time, I truly recognize myself as a grown man. I spent my high school years trying the patience of my parents and honestly everyone around me.
Thrill seeking adventurous boy is how I would describe myself. Reckless would be my mother’s word for me.
Barely getting through school, I had zero plans for college. It’s probably why I didn’t really apply myself in school. I didn’t need to.
This is next level for my mom to take in and I don’t want to worry her, but this is my life and where my gut says I need to go. I know she can’t understand, but I’m one hundred percent confident in my choice. “I don’t have to, you’re right, Momma. Won’t deny that. This is a choice I made and it’s more than just serving as a soldier in the Army. But I want to. I want to serve my brothers-in-arms at the next level.”
My decision to join the Army didn’t surprise my parents. Boomer and I have been inseparable since he came into our lives when I was six years old. He was in the Army, so I was going to be in the Army without question.
My choice after selection to continue on and become an Army Ranger, that is a different thing. It’s something no one understands unless they are in the Army. It’s an honor. The woman in front of me barely holds herself together. I hate to cause her pain.
