I felt a lot more prepared for Afghanistan. I have known several guys that served there and they have said that the terrain was the same as home. Growing up hunting, I leaned many things about the mountains that most people will never know. But, I'll go where they think I'm needed and make the best of the situation.
Most people have no idea that we have combat operations going on in Africa. It's not classified, the media just chooses to ignore it for some reason. I'll be in Djibouti, it's buy Somalia, Ethiopia, and Yemen. I know, I know, wonderful neighbors! I will be on land, not on a ship. I've still never been on a U.S. ship!
Next week, I’ll have more posts, and I’ll be commenting on more blogs. Right now my internet situation is hit and miss.
