 Well guys, I had fun on leave.  I'm back over here now for about 4 more months, so it should go by pretty quickly.  I had a couple of VERY nice outings on Kentucky Lake and had a fun trip with my oldest daughter (6) and got her on some bream.  It was great to be with the family again if only for 18 days.  Ron, I got your package too by the way, thanks alot!!  Well, I look forward to talkin to ya'll on here and I'll see ya'll in KY next year!!!

its great you had a great time on leave... your waiting 11 months was tough I am sure.. I waited 12 and it liked to kill me.. or my soldiers because by ten I was so grumpy they WANTED me to go on leave hahaha... NOW keep your head in the game troop... the next 90 days will go fast.. then the last month will SLOWWWWWWWWWW down like nothing you have ever had in your life... the RIP/TOA process isn't too bad... just remember how it was when you came in.. and if there is any little bit of info you can pass on to make them settle in better TELL THEM...I tell you when you see your replacements arrive you say a HUGE sigh of relief.. BUT you HAVE TO KEEP YOUR HEAD IN THE GAME... the first and the last month were where we lost most of our soldiers.  SEND STUFF HOME... I ended up sending SIX foot lockers home.. but that is a bit over the top... get your hooah stuff now and send it in the lockers ie: t-shirts, coins and all that other stuff you WILL want when you get home, the reason is going thru CUSTOMS SUCKS... trust me on this one... you can't send any of your TA-50 thru the mail so I would suggest you send everything BUT... I came thru with a carry one a ruck and a duffel and let me tell you... it SUCKED... see if you can get it down to your carry on and a duffel... you will thank me for this later  ;D

NOW KEEP YOUR HEAD IN THE GAME... get the theme here? Don't get frustrated your BS meter is going to be about pegged and you are going to be doing a whole lot of hurry up and wait.. packing conexes and all that stuff.. this is one instance where I would say... volunteer for the details... it WILL help the time go by faster... and if you need anything else let me know...

Be safe, and come home soon. I won't be able to meet you at Kentucky, but if you're ever in S.E. michigan, I'll take you out on St. Clair for some ill-tempered smallies.

God bless,

Falcon

Joe, glad to hear you had a good time on leave.  Be careful over there so we can fish together at Kentucky Lake when you get back.  Glad you got the package I sent over there and I hope you and your troop enjoy it.

Keep yourself safe, and come home safe!  Sounds like you and your daughter enjoyed some quality time while you were home.  That is what it is all about.

Thank you for all you and the rest of the military do for us.
