New chapter of my life.

So 3 days ago the newest chapter of my life began, pretty sobering. Got a phone call from my unit, me and 10 other guys from my unit have gotten picked to go overseas to go to Afghanistan. We start our pre-deployment training monday for 6 months then its over seas.

Got the phone call just after coming home from working for 2 and half months away from home and am home for 1 week then i'm off for a year to do this.

Mixed emotions to say the least.

Now down to 6, 4 guys turned down the contract or got booted for various reasons.
