Default See y'all later.

I'll be leaving for Afghanistan shortly. Like always there will be good and bad to this, but I'm trying to see the positive (experience) vs. the negative (leaving a new baby again).

Like last time, when I come back there will be things to improve about the car. Might even replace it.

I'm anticipating not having very good internet connectivity even when I'm not out on mission, living out of my rucksack. So I'll look forward to talking to y'all when I get back, or when I seize an opportunity to use a connected computer somewhere.

As a thanks for stopping by my thread, here's a pic of my freshly painted M4.

If you have any questions shoot me an email (or call). It's all fairly fresh in my head. Keep your head down, do what it takes to get home, and never get complacent!!!

Good job with painting that M4. Most people try to put too much detail into it and it blends together.

I got two brothers rotating through, and two other brothers who were already there (since as far back as "Desert Shield"). Stay safe.

Take care of yourself.

How do they say that in Arabic?


We'll see you when you get back. Good luck and Godspeed.

Take care man, if you need anything, let us know. It sucks being deployed, but the tax free income and bonus money you get paid isn't bad. Also, the AF has it to where when your deployed you can put money into an account that draws 10% interest, up to 10000 dollars. Do you have that?

Once you get there post up an address where we can send **** to and let us know if you need anything. I am sure we would all pitch in to get you some luxuries.
