Wow!!! I can finally say that we’ll be home for good next month. I never thought this time in our deployment would come. For those of you who don’t have all the details of when we’re coming home and what we’ll be doing, let me fill you in.
We leave here sometime around the middle of August. We fly north and will spend a small amount of time preparing to leave the region. We will then fly in the general direction of the United States, landing in Mississippi after the middle of the month. We will out-process at Camp “Hotter than Hell and Even More Humid” Shelby for a day or days or even more days. We will then fly home to Utah on whatever day that actually ends up being and after an alleged 48 hour pass we'll out process in Utah. After that, most of us will return to being full-time civilians.
How’s that for details?
OK, I can’t give you dates as the only sure date (at least for now it’s a sure date) that we know is the date we leave Afghanistan. But of course I can’t tell you that date for security reasons. You’ll have to get that from your loved one.
Regardless, we come home next month and I know I speak for all of us here, I cannot wait!!!
