"....Re-up? You're outta your mind!"

I wish I'd thought to get names, but this is some joe from C/2-87 INF taking a moment from our busy mission of getting mortared and shot at to re-enlist in the United States Army. This was on a ridgeline deep in Helmand province last summer, where we were attacked four times during our 18-day visit.

Just curious...

Did you spend much time in the region just north of Kandahar? I'm sorry I can't be more specific, but that's where I'll be.

Oh yes

The entire summer, pretty much.

OMG! Durham! He's alive!

Email me directly when you're headed back for some more of that nuclear coffee that made your team so fond of your energy level.

That should be in about two months. Currently in Kansas training up. Some good triaining, some bad. That's the Army I suppose.

Favorite quote from an instructor so far: "I'm in Civil Affairs, and that's pretty much just like Special Forces..." I almost choked. :)

Yeah, I fell off the map for a while - completed my Captain's Course, got a masters degree, and completed a hectic (and way too short) PCS move for my wife to Washington before reporting here. ;) I'll probably be in touch a little more often now.
