    Several of my friends are over there building forward operating bases and infrastructure for the US military. Certainly not something you want to do for years because they works 80 hours a week and being away from home in eventually draining. However, they all say something to the effect of "I will never do anything to top this in my life" and "it's the most amazing thing I have ever done." I hope you have a similar experience. Stay safe.

    That's more or less the same feedback all my friends that have been down there give me as well. Hopefully it will be the same for me, but there are no guarantees until you set your foot on your home turf again, fully intact both physically and mentally

    Re: Leaving for Afghanistan

    Just popping by to say hi to all and see how things are going over here. Havenīt been by for a looong time due to predeployment training. Iīll hopefully be back in here and a little more active when I get back and have time to do more costume work.

    Iīm deploying to Mazar-e Sharif next week and Iīll try to stay in one piece the next 6 months.

    We sadly lost 4 excellent soldiers last night, which was a big blow to all of us back here. We just keep getting reminded that the work down there is far from finished and the afghani people still need help.

    Be safe bro. I just got back from a year tour in Afghanistan in March and rotated through MEZ a couple times while in country. I had a great time working with a lot of different NATO forces. Thanks for your service.
