After a long day of re-enacting a scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail in terms of how to react to IEDs, we headed out this evening to a warehouse to be issued the latest model of body armor, plus other special clothing designed for desert environments. This being an Army event, no fewer than 30% were told, "Sorry, we don't have your size, but we'll order it for you, and it'll be herein a month or so." As we expect to already be in theater long before that time, I guess we won't get that stuff anytime soon.
My aircard stopped working a couple of days ago, so blog entries may become less frequent until I arrive at my final destination. I know where that is, but I can't tell ya. I do know that I should have a private room, with internet and AFN (Armed Forces Network) television. The team that I expect to be working with is a great bunch of folks, which will make the year go by more quickly.
The computer lab is closing for the evening, so will sign off for now. Peace Out. (I have no idea what that means, but I've always wanted to say it. I promise you it won't happen again.
