20 Feb 2011,
Well, the 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team had their farewell ceremony this last Wednesday at the Oklahoma City Arena and Cox Convention Center. Once again, we will be heading to Afghanistan. I really do need another travel agent setting up my trips. Why can't I conduct operations in Hawaii, New Zealand, Italy? Regardless, I will go on orders next week and begin training.
Miss Dub went to her first drama/monologue competition and took first place in poetry! We were so excited for her. She now qualifies for regional. We went and saw her perform her semi-finals round and I was impressed with all of the competitors I saw and really like three, Miss Dub was one of them.
Mrs Dub is doing good, at least she is putting on a strong face. I think the deployments are getting easier for us to deal with. By that I mean we know what to expect, when to expect it and how things are laid out.
For me, this deployment will be much different in that I will be going as the First Sergeant for my company rather than going in my MOS job.
I will be posting more frequently so family and friends can be updated on my status.
Be safe and have a great day!

Glad to hear that you'll be keeping us updated; I worry about our troops over there. Got a friend in the Naval Reserve that's getting called up again soon because of all the unrest over in the Mid East. Scares the crap outta me to have him go over there again but it's the nature of the beast.

Stay safe!

The only way we get regular updates is for you to be deployed. Well, be safe and we will be talking.
