    Afghan bound finally

    Well, it's about that time. In a few more hours, I will be heading to the armory to draw out my weapon, and will be on my way to the air force base sometime late tonight to sit around in preparation for my departure to Afghanistan.

    I wanted to thank all the Marines in the past who have helped me with advice from when I was a wannabe, poolee, and now a Marine. First deployment obviously, so nervous, but excited as well. My family is doing well. My two girls are too young to know what's going on. My 4 year old just thinks I'm going to training like I have the past few months. My wife is being strong, but I know when I depart her tonight, she will be upset. Thank god for other Marine wives and Navy wives she has met here on base.

    I will randomly come back on if time prevails with updates on my life in Afghanistan, but can't promise when. Thanks again for the support you have all given me!

    Semper Fi Marines!

    The only advice I could offer would pertain to Iraq, and I haven't been back there since 06. All I know is, Helmand Providence is real hot (and I'n not talking about tempature).

    He's already on the launching pad so I'll speak for him. He is in Comm and part of 3rd Marines.
