    i might be leaving to a far away land next month. don't know where exactly and i couldn't tell you if i did know. Uncle Sam has called upon my brigade and several others on post to head out in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif The only time frame i have been given to return, is when our mission is done. Those already over there that are supossed to be back in March won't be comming home on time. The y got the same "when our mission is done" time line. I am currently prepping my unit's vehicles for deployment with a very short amount of notice. Gonna be an experience i guess. I will talk to you all before i go and might get to talk occassionally while away from home, but, come february, it may be a while before you hear from or of me.

    (everything i am telling you has been made public already so i am not divulging classified information)

    Wish I could go with you, but, unfortunately I have been out for a while. I had my time during Desert Storm...

    My buddy at ElPaso, and prepping vehicles to go also, told me he was thinking he may be leaving soon a few weeks ago.

    Good luck, keep your head down, and come home safe.

    I am a SGT(P) and I am a maintenance shop foreman. I have a fleet of 60 HMMWV's, 6 5-ton's and a trailer and power generator for almost every vehicle(and a bunch of idiots who do not know how to operate thhese things). To everyone that replied with a thanks or well wishing, i thank you for the support. I am currently sending my friends out and will be joining them a few weeks later and it is starting to make me worry a little. My wife is worried a lot. My parents were visiting and left today. I didn't tell then anything but Dad figured it out and told Mom they weren't leaving until after i got home from work. Don't want her to know though because she is worrying over my Grandmother, who has cancer, and was just taken off of Chemotherapy because it wasn't doing any good any longer. I am wondering if she will live long enough for me to she her again. I will be here for a little longer so i will keep posting a bit until then. Thanks again.
