Well, I’m down to the last days. 60 left to be nearly exact. My girlfriend and friends have been absolutely wonderful. From the constant bombardment of care packages, to my best bud coming all the way down to my place to drive my truck to Chicago for storage covering many many miles. Encouraging emails and messages.
I’d not even had made it to deployment had it not been for several of my friends. They were there for me when i needed help most.
I look forward to getting home and being back with the old gang.
Knowing that this is my last deployment makes these last days “in country” sort of bittersweet. Coming home for the final time from war will mark the close of one part of my life, and the opening of another.
I got asked about the KB patch on my sleeve. 1. I am a photographer that really developed (pun intended) my love of photography over several overseas tours. 2. An because fuck you, that’s why. I’m an O-4 and a senior one at that.
