Sorry... been a long time. I made it to Afghanistan back in July of 2009, and assumed it would be yet another typical deployment. I was way wrong. Instead, I was attached to the US Army 1st Battalion out of Fort Bragg, and supported them as the only AF member of their team. I did some amazing and insane things I never thought I'd ever do, and those guys kept my ass alive. I gained more respect for the Army during my time with them, purposely rejecting a typical 'Joint' medal offered up so that I could get the Army Commendation instead. I'm more proud of that green ribbon on my uniform than anything else.

Oh, man, wish I knew you were in Monterey...I stopped there in January on a roadtrip up the coast. I was probably eating some clam chowder and drinking beer while you were studying :) Good to see you back on here and looking forward to hearing about life in Europe!10:03 PM
I'm guessing you're still busy. ;-) I really miss my daily stops here. Hope all is still well with you & that you're still enjoying life!11:54 AM
