I am officially going to Afghanistan!

I leave for IRDO at Camp Atterbury in Indiana on Sunday, June 23rd. All should go well there with me leaving there on Friday, June 28th to go to theater via Kuwait. I should arrive in Afghanistan on or about July 2nd!

Please take care of the TitD and the Guard Hippo in my absence.

Depending on the reliability of the Internet connection there I will try to make visits here.

***************************************************

Good luck, and be safe.


Be safe, Lynn. Any idea how long you'll be there?


Initially, 6 months but hoping to make it 12 months.


I wish the best for you and your fellow soliders.
Just like you - tough job, and you are already looking for more.

Yea, but I'm going as a civilian contractor for my company. I did volunteer as I want to see how our software is used in theater and help support our troops using it. It will provide added insight as I help support development when I return.

Stay safe, Lynn! I was thinking about you when I read the news about the attack on the Kabul airport last week. Thought you might have been there already. Obviously not

... Maybe the absence of a right fielder in the lineup is a nod to the common perception of right field as a "throwaway" position that's not very important to the defense


I strongly object to that! I'm playing right field!

useful as a spot in the lineup for a player whose hitting is important to the team but whose defensive skills may be suspect.


Now I'm smiling again. So that's why I got batter of the year?


... the Red Sox started to put Babe Ruth in right field to get him in the lineup more often as his hitting became so outstanding.


Now I feel really flattered

Oh my! And I understand you're looking forward to getting extended to 12 months. It must be an awesome gig.

Be safe, ol' friend.

I will explain...

No, to explain will take too long. I will sum up.

The Doctor is on first.

The enemy's gate is down.

I still need to watch that movie start to end some day. Bought it just for that purpose.
How can you not have seen that movie start to end? Wait - do you have six fingers!?


Or maybe he's just a Scicilian trying to beat you in a game of wits?


You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders - The most famous of which is "never get involved in a land war in Asia" - but only slightly less well-known is this: "Never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line"! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha...


My favorite line of that came from a Star Trek Book. "You fell for one of the classic blunders, The most famous of which is "Never get involved in a war on Vulcan", but only slightly less well-known is this: "Never go against a Ferengi when Money's on the line!".

Spoken by the original Grand Nagus himself...
