Default Day #1 of a long year ahead...

I took my bestfriend to the airport at 6:00am this morning. He ships from Indiana to Iraq this week for a year. Him and I have been through a lot together. We dated for 2 years and he made some bad decisions due to his crazy ex girlfriend. We have been broken up for a year and recently started hanging out again. He has been gone for the past 3 months for training and came home for the weekend on friday. I am so proud of him and scared at the same time. Praying he comes home safe....

Good luck to you and your friend! I appreciate his service. What branch is he in?

I'm kinda dealing with the same thing currently, with a close family member deploying this week.

Btw, totally didnt know you were a girl when first reading this and was like: "wtf!?!".. lol

Best of luck to your friend and be sure to thank him for his service on my behalf. Youll be surprised how fast the next year will go by for the both of you.

====================================
If you talk to him between now & when he ships, give him some advice from a Vet that was in durin Desert Storm (1st trip to the "SANDBOX"): "If they don't speak english, dropem before they drop you and/or your buddies with you". If they don't understand "HALT", then TOO BAD!
Too many of our boys die every freakin day cause they aren't allowed to play WAR..............PRAY for his comfort, safety, & quik return home in good health!
