First entry

The first entry! woohoo. I wanted to start this blog prior to being deployed to try to take you through the emotions, etc. that accompany being a US Servicemember facing a looming deployment and beyond. I'll be adding a weekly message with the occasional pause due to training and travel. It will be a learning process at first, but I'm sure that I'll become a blogging pro as time goes on, as my friend Carl undoubtedly did in Iraq, good job Carl! Well that's about it for the "big" intro, I'll be writing more as time hopefully flies by! Take care.


  1. I hope you remember your colombian couter part Valencia. From what I read it seems that you are going back to the sand box, huh? Are going to be in the same place we were last time?

    Good Luck and I hope everything goes smooth. Take care, your call of duty body, Nemesis.

  2. This is a delightful way for those of us family members to watch your tour and count down the days until your return. I look forward to following your adventures. Keep safe, we love you lots.
    Willy, Scott and Cory

  3. I haven't forgotten about you Nemesis! Hopefully we'll have something like that in Afghanistan, but I don't think anyone can beat the Bulletsponge! Thanks Willy, I think that this will be the easiest way for me to keep in touch with everyone! Take care.
