    Its war and this stuff happens. Doesn't bother me too much because I know that anything can happen. I just need to do my job and maintain awareness.

    I'm getting way to anxious to start the train up. The unit im going with has left already for train up and since I am getting attached to them my brigade is pussyfooting around with the orders. So hopefully I get the orders and fly really soon. I hate the "hurry up and wait" aspect of the army but I'm used to it by now (i guess)

    Im leaving tommorow morning to check back into my unit and begin ILOC. Be in Iraq in August.

    Nice being here from me going from Civilian to war, DoD blocked forums apparently so this must be goodbye.
