Greetings! This is the vehicle I plan to use to keep in touch with my friends, family, and colleagues while I'm deployed to Iraq. For security reasons, I won't be posting any personal identification information here, but that shouldn't detract from the story.
My "shakedown cruise" will be blogging from RTC-North while my unit undergoes the first stint of combat refresher training. Learning to operate armored Hummers, and engaging in hand-to-hand combat training without sustaining disabling injuries are two of the more challenging items on our itinerary.
Anyway, it should be a fun-filled 14 months, so please visit regularly, and feel free to make lots of comments!
