ON THE WAY
Well, it has been a while since I've posted and that is because not much has happened. FOr the last two weeks it's been pretty much the same, wake up between 430 and 500am, throw on 70 pounds of gear, go to a range and shoot all day. After that we have various classes, clean weapons, eat and then lights out at 10pm.
However, I am finally on my way. I was supposed to leave early Saturday morning but an electrical storm delayed the flight. So, we ended up leaving around 1030 on Saturday morning. We stopped in Goose Bay Canada, then Iceland and now Germany. We are now stuck in Germany for 15 hours. Yes, ONE FIVE hours. I am not sure what NASA genius figure our flight plan but it was all rush rush to get out of SC and in the air and now we are stuck in Germany in a holding area for military personnel.
All I want to do is get this deployment going so I can finish it up but it seems like there is an obstacle at every turn. So, rather than actually being in Kuwait right now I am stuck in Germany and not going anywhere for more than 1/2 a day. If I drank I'd be drunk right now.
