Well it has been a long year but then again it has flown by pretty quick. As the Subj line says, I'll be departing for home and be stateside in about 63 days. I have enjoyed my tour and can tell you the service men and women in Iraq or Afghan are holding the line. I'm sitting in Kuwait on my way back after a week in Baghdad, hats off to those men and women, the conditions are pretty good but there are better places to be.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in
a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming --WOW -- " What a ride!!!
