    On August 8th I was supposed to start retirement leave after 21 years in the Army. However, instead, thanks to stop-loss I will be taking an all expense paid trip to the hills of Afghanistan in December.

    Good news is I'll be retiring just a little bit later... like, July 2010...

    Plan is to build a set of Storm Trooper armor to occupy my hours between flights.

    Thanks, however, it could be worse.

    I could just be a pawn, used by a power hungry leader trying to take control of the universe and end up severely burned, with-out limbs, and forced to spend the rest of my life living in a leather gimp suit sounding like James Earl Jones....

    Well, at least the second part might not happen....

    Well that does suck. But then it's not just a job... it's an adventure... right?

    Thanks for your service, nevertheless.
