It seems like I've been gone for a long time, yet this journey hasn't really even started yet. I'm home on a quick four-day pass right now. That means I get to come home for four days, see my family, and eat some junk food. When I head back to New Jersey, I'll be sitting there waiting for the plane ride to...Kuwait. Why not Iraq yet? Everyone goes to Kuwait first. You have to get used to the climate and do a little more training. Then we will head to Baghdad and take over AFN Iraq. We've got quite a few things in mind for the radio station, and I'm pretty confident that our TV news folks are going to get some interesting stories as elections draw near in the new republic.
A few people have requested my address...and I've given it to a few. I'll post it on this blog, but not yet. When I was running a post office on my last deployment, I hated when mail would show up for a unit that wasn't there yet. I'm going to save the address until I know exactly when we will get to our final destination.
Everyone take care.
By the way, I have the BEST wife and daughter in the history of the world.
