    I have been saving my post #1000 for quite a few months, as I figured it should be used for something important. Well, as I have been overseas, in the sandbox since July 7, 09, I finally have an announcement worth using post count #1000 for.

    I’m finally coming home!

    I have just a small amount of time left here, but the end of my tour is well within sight! I can’t wait to rejoin my family, friends, & fellow officers. My family and my girlfriend Melissa have been extremely supportive during my time away! A GT member K9barco (Charlie) and his wife, have also done many nice things for me. I didn’t know before this time really how deep the support is for our troops. I can say without a doubt, that the support that was shown to me has been the most humbling experience that I have ever witnessed.

    I am going to take some time away from the job to catch up on things I missed out on. I am glad to put this time in the rear view mirror, and focus on hopefully making this year a good one. I will try to post a couple of pictures to follow.

    Don't get sloppy, brother. Getting killed on your last day is not better than getting killed anywhen else. Stay sharp, and come home safely.

    Thanks for the concern, I am not much of a hero, and I am not on the front lines. I guess I will make another post if and when I am actually home lol:wavey:

    Take all the precautions a short-timer needs to get home in one piece. Thanks for all the sacrifices you've made.

    I can tell you're not in the USAF. We never had time to get online let alone post pictures to a forum full of JBTs. :tongueout:





    Seriously though, keep doing what you're supposed to be doing and most importantly, come home safely. I'd rather see that ugly mug in one piece than on the news.

    If you find out which AOR rotater CONUS city you come in to soon, let me know. If you're in Atlanta, I'll drive there to buy you your first round in the States.

    Yes drop us a line when you get back.

    Be safe until then. I lost a friend over there...

    Thanks for your service, feels good to be a short-timer, but don't get complacent and come home safely.
