    Just got my alert

    Raging Bull. A year from now, I'll be back in the lovely sandbox known as Afghanistan. JHudd, are you getting attached?

    They typically do. At least, that's what they try and do now. My first time, I had about 30 days notice. My job will be, assuming the transfer goes through, a Military Police officer.

    That's too bad. I've already got one friend in the sandbox and another friend going over there less than a year from now. While I'll likely never end up over there myself (unless I happen to go on some 180 day civilian deployment as an Army Civilian), I'll just continue doing the best I can for my soldiers everyday in my career.

    One team, one fight. We all have to do our piece.

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    4 separate units have been tapped to back-fill, plus we may have to attach another infantry battalion to get our 3,500 Soldiers. In other words, there will probably be some openings.

    Best wishes, and thanks for your service. From what I hear, you'll get to guard prisoners who live in better facilities than you do.

    I know it's cheezy, but Ditto. I couldn't have said it better myself. I know a lot of things get thrown around on this board and no matter what political affiliation we may have, you always have to respect and honor those that serve for this great country of ours. If it weren't for men like you, we'd have no CF.

    Thank you and God Bless.

    Sorry you got called up, but let me say this.

    Thanks for all you do for my family and I. We truly appreciate the things you guys and gals do for us.
