I have so enjoyed the banter and the dialogue on this thread.
I just wish we could have all these discussions around the campfire with adult beveridge in hand. I firmly believe that most of us have a lot more in common than we think we do.
I leave tomorrow, for a short training module and then back into the breach for the 5th time. Hopefully, this is my last deployment....I'm simply getting too old for this crap. It's a young mans game these days....and my goal is to keep as many of these courageous young men as safe as possible while sticking it to the Taliban/Al Queda.
I believe in leading from the front.....so keep me in your prayers....that I would have clarity of judgement and not lack for decisiveness when the going gets tough.
I'll try and stick my nose in here in the coming months....you all take care. I'll be with the 10th Mtn Division.
