Here in ATL

One final time before we move to the next stop before the last stop I got here a day early as the BDE CO wanted all the 1SGs to be present the day before the troops - makes complete sense...but would have been nice to know when we went home instead of 5 days before our return....grrrr.....oh well..."three bags full"

I got to see the kids before I left for the airport - Trey and I played catch for a few minutes in the front yard - Trin was sleepy and a bit sick...poor girl...I will miss them emmensly...

The flight was nice  - The Airline hooked me up with a 1st class seat - nicely done (yay!) and I had a cold Heineken in my hand within seconds! My noise canceling headphones were AWESOME - no jet noise - good jams - and it even blocked out the screaming baby back in coach! Everyone is SO nice when you travel in uniform....but some give you a really sad look like they just found out that you have terminal cancer...JFC people - just because we are Soldiers and going off to war doesn't gurantee out untimely demise or life shattering wounds - heh. But the majority were really nice to the point of insisting on buying you a soft drink or a snack...heh...I declined all....but it was SO nice to have that sort kindness bestowed on you. Even people just passing would make a point of saying "thank you"...

However - I do have a bit of a gripe - I arrived at the airport and no driver - went to the USO - no driver...the lady behind the desk at the USO acted like I was crazy...anyway - I call the S4 NCOIC about the driver - no answer....grrrrrr.....I am rapidly losing my frostiness....I trudge down to the taxi stand and load my stuff in a mini-van driven by - you guessed it - "Mohammad Abdullah" - here is me in ACUs with 3 LARGE bags full of US Army kit...and paranoid...worried about old boy shouting Allah-hu -Akbar and pulling into some AQ safehouse...but $65 of your tax dollars later I arrive safely at the hotel...thank Mr. Abdullah in Arabic and check in - *whew*

 

Well - more later - and no time for a spell check - so over it
