    Well time seems to be going very slow over here in Iraq, now that I know how long remains. The date of our departure has been officially made public so I will begin a countdown here at the BOC!! Of course all things are subject to change here in the army so this may not be 100% accurate and definately does not reflect when I will be back in the states. Only when I will leave here.

    SO, I now have only 24 days until I leave Iraq!!!

    I will try to keep this updated and current.

    It will seem like a long time. Instead of 24 days it will seem like 24 years. Just hang in there and can't wait to have you back home.

    Are you going to be at Fort Campbell??

    Remember the Tuesday Night Red Tails at Energy Lake or Devils Elbow.

    You ought to come on down. Griz, John Catfish Young and the gang will show you how it's done. The catching of the monster flathead.

    As soon as I get healed up, I'm going to drive down and have them show me, again.

    Brother Hilljack, congradulations on getting to come back home.

    Took the words right out of my head. (I would say mouth, but noone on here can hear me LOL)...

    And thank you for your serving. Like willcat said, come home safe.

    My son-in-law will be there with you very soon. Kick him around for me while you're there... If you can't figure out which one he is, just kick everyone around, you'll find him soon nuff. LOL

    Oh he's Air Force btw...
