The unit I'm going to be assigned to (3rd Bat, 69th Armor Reg, 1BCT, 3ID) is deploying next month according to staff duty at fort stewart reception. I'm gonna call again tomorrow to verify this and get more info. Trying to figure out exactly when and to where, if possible. And most importantly, I'd like to know if I'm staying back or if they are taking me with them. I'm going to drive there saturday. I have to report there by monday. drive should take 16 hours & 1,000 miles. father will fly out to visit and drive it back home to dallas when/if I deploy. I'm gonna transfer my pc media to my 250 gig xbox 360 hard drive, that is, if I get the chance to actually use it. i guess i'll sell it on craigslist if I'm really going to be gone for a year. I'm getting goosebumps. And for that reason alone, I don't actually think I'll be deployed.
