To the Sandbox
As of today, it's official. I will be deploying in September. I've known for a long time I was on the list, but today the official paperwork came down. I'm actually looking forward to it. It's been nearly two years since I last deployed, which is the longest I've ever gone without deploying in my entire Air Force career, and I'm getting antsy. Plus, it's only for four months, which means I should return in January and won't miss too much of the snowboarding season. The worst part about it will be all the ridiculous training and prep work we'll have to do before we go, which really doesn't have anything to do with our job once we get there. The best part will be making big bucks, getting lots of reading done, and hopefully, coming back with washboard abs and a decent tan. My only real worry is that I won't be able to update "the wax" very often, if at all; however, I think, with a little help from my friends, there might be a way around it. But I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.
