    Leaving for Afghanistan

    Hey guys!

    I haven't been to active here on the boards lately. Had a lot to do in the past few months to say the least.

    And today I got the confirmation that my application to join my brothers in arms in Afghanistan recieved a big ol` thumbs up!

    I'll start my training period in mid April and deploy in mid July.

    The job consist of escort end VIP escort around the northern region. Wish me luck brothers

    Yeah, Ill be tilting my head back every time we pass a power line now Thanks for the tip though, you always tend to think roadside IEDs are in the ground or thereabouts.

    Re: Leaving for Afghanistan

    BTW, I'll be stationed in Mazar-e Sharif, not Kabul as I previously stated.

    I'm guessing you US-guys will be in the south for the most part?
