Thanks for the well wishes, dudes. I hope it flies by too, being away from my daughters will be the toughest part. Elise was only 3 weeks old when I left her the first time, and Juliette is just shy of 3 months now. It tears me apart thinking that Elise is old enough now (3) to understand that I'm leaving for a good while. But I digress..

Thanks, the others on my team were giving me some flak about it (too much brown, too much effort, all the 11Bs are going to laugh at you, etc.) I don't care, of course. It's meant to blend well with Multicam, which is what I'll be wearing the majority of the time there anyway. Be sure to thank your brothers for their service!

We'll see you when you get back. Good luck and Godspeed.
Ma salama would be the closest. Means "(go) with safety" literally. That reminds me, I owe you a translation, don't I? I listened to that song briefly, wasn't getting much though. Egyptian dialect is haaarrrdddd.

That's called the Savings Deposit Program, and I think it's standard across all of the services. I did that last time and made a good chunk of change. I just basically took all the money I didn't immediately need and funneled it in there. 10% adds up!

Y'all are absolutely welcome to, I'll post up an address in this thread once I get one, could be a month or so. Snacks and hand warmers will be the hot items, methinks.

Well, we'll see. If we do get in a fight, my team has a lot of noob tubes

Good luck Koto. Can't imagine leaving my girls, but that's what will get you through and back in no time.

So that's why you were painting all your gear. ****, Matt. Come back with all appendages and dangly bits in once piece.

I am with you Brother. I know what is like to leave family behind...I got 3 deployments so far. Just stay in contact and will fly by. You been there before I am sure you already know that.

APO to APO is free, so drop an address for free goodies.

Take care.

Stay safe man. Thanks for your service.

I couldn't imagine leaving my daughter that long either. They grow up too fast.

Down for care package help, or monetary assistance for getting pics/videos of family out to you.

Take care.

Matt -

Having already been deployed before, you know the routine. Find the old hands that can give you the straight poop on the do's, don'ts and gotcha's; ID the shitbirds in your unit and attempt to pair them w/ someone to mentor them before they get themselves or someone else injured or worse; stay tactical but don't fall into a rut; and most importantly, keep your eyes and ears open so you can come back to friends and family as intact as possible.

I wish you the best and look forward to hearing good news from you.

Shukran. Ma salama.

My little brother is deploying from Ft. Bragg to Iraq in January. His wife is already in Crapstanastan. I hear it is beautiful if you like dust and rocks.
