Japan it is!

After being gone for three days and not worrying about Cpl leaving saying 'Its okay they wont being calling you to leave to Japan with a few days left before they leave.'

Guess who just ate their words! Today about mid-afternoon we get a call from an Richmond number. Couldn't get to it in time and it went to voice mail. Wait a few minutes and no voice mail. I told him he should call the number and see what that was about. It was a SSgt who said that Cpl should come in on Monday and if anyone had told him what was going on. He said that he knew about a deployment that was leaving for Japan in October 7th. The SSgt let out a big laugh and said no more like this Saturday on the 1st of October. Cpl being who he is said he still wanted to go. So, the SSgt said 'I'll see you at 0830 to give you orders and a packing list.'

Ooo, man! We have a whole maybe 48hrs to get everything ready. I'm wishing him luck with this seeing as I haven't a clue what to do other then be there for him!

Afgan, Africa, Japan Oh My!

The other day the Gunny that was helping Cpl with his package to join the reserve unit out of Richmond called. She was just making sure that he understood that there was a possibility of him going away for six months of training. Which I know he wouldn't mind at all seeing as its in one of his favorite places Okinawa!

So, its hits me that he really wants to go on this training or on a deployment. I don't think I'm ready for the training much less the deployment. It scares the living SH%& out of me. Here is a short list of where he might be going Afgan, Africa or Japan. Hum, I like Japan I might be able to go on a trip to see him there, at least!

Well, for now I'll just have to wait and see what happens. SSgt and Gunny are trying to ship his ass out! Just waiting on orders. Which also puts a hold on the wedding. As soon as orders are dropped and we know whats going on we are getting married if not sooner...
