Good evening fellow ATSers. I received a notice in my chock-full mailbox this afternoon. Upon seeing it, I knew what it was.
As of July 13th, 2005, I will be reporting to Twentynine Palms, CA, to receive a briefing about my deployment to the Middle East. From there, we will
be shipping out to Little Rock, AK, and then forward to Germany, and onto Kuwait for some final preparations.
I have been retired for 4+ years now (Shortly before 9/11) and have been enlisted in the Retired Reserve, part of the IRR (Individual Ready Reserve).
From what I have heard from my fellow officers, we will be deployed to Northern Iraq. That is all I know for now.
I have been called up to assist with an infantry battalion and will be on the ground in Iraq. Hopefully, if any God-blessed R&R permits me, I will be
able to upload some pics and inform you all of how things are going over there.
God bless ya'll and please keep me in your prayers.
