"March"ing the Transitions

Communication and updates here on the blog might be a little sparse for a bit - but this is a decent thing because of why. Here's a bit of an update with some nice news about this deployment.

First up, March marks the 6th month of 7 month orders in Iraq. Seems like it has taken forever to get here, but we've finally arrived to the light at the end of the tunnel.

Will is currently involved with the transition to send their unit home. This entire transition process has quite a few more steps and stages than I would have predicted. Documentation needs to be detailed to define status of everything. Picture looking ahead and knowing you have one week to train someone to be you and they'll never have the opportunity to ask questions after that training.

YES!!! How excited Will (and his Marine buddies) and you must be! Do you know if they have moved out of their "cans" to temporary housing yet? Have they seen their replacements yet? I didn't expect to hear these words until early April, so this truly is a good development! Woohoo!!!!
