After a long trip I’m home. Beginning on the 8th, we departed our company out post and headed south. Traveling from northern Iraq, to Baghdad, to Kuwait, then to Ireland, then to Maine in the US then to California and finally back across to the east coast.
It was a long trip but it doesn’t really matter when you are headed home though. My frequent flyer miles should be off the charts!! Its awesome to be home and the things that I see the most is green trees, the smell of green fresh cut grass,clouds (since we never saw any) and the several other things I immediately see we have as Americans that we so easily take for granted. That will be another post.
This weekend, look for the guy with no hair enjoying a nice non- boiled steak, cold beer and several cigars, that’s me.
The large effort by all of you supporting us while in Hades is nothing but exemplified now as we are home. I can’t thank you all enough. I will be “resting” and getting to know the entire family again. Will write soon!
Semper Fidelis and God Bless.
