Hi gang. This will be my last news post for several weeks at least. My unit will start heading to Iraq starting tomorrow morning at 6am Hawai’i time. Lookin’ at a 30+ hour flight… from here to Los Angles, to New York, to Scotland, to Germany and then finally to Kuwait. We’ll stay there for 2-3 weeks before the big push up into Iraq. Final destination is Kirkuk, which is about 200 miles or so north of Baghdad… prolly take our convoy about 3-4 days to make the drive. Oh joy ;-)
Anyways… wanted to take the small amount of time I had left to make a quick post and to say to everybody so long and that I’ll be back in a years time. I should be able to read/post messages and upload pictures every so often, the base at Kirkuk has a small internet cafe I think. If you want to write to me or send stuff in the way of a care package, you can – I’ll be posting my APO address in the message thread pertaining to this news post.
That’s all I have folks. Take care, hopefully I’ll ‘see’ ya again soon.
