As usual the plane got delayed. So I am sitting in Norfolk Va waiting. I hate waiting. You would think after 19 -1/2 years in the military I would be used to it. NO!
Soooo.... what will I be doing over in Iraq? Fleet repair and management. Much of the reason I am a fire fighter is because of my vehicle back ground. I started out as a fire truck mechanic. More like a big kid with big toys. I LOVE fire trucks. When I promoted myself out of playing with fire trucks all day (thank you tax payers for paying me to play all day) I had to find another way to be around fire trucks. Volunteer Fire Fighter. All the fun of playing with fire trucks... and when they break... I get to call a mechanic.
As boring as the title sounds I really enjoy my job. I get to work with the sons and daughters of America teaching and guiding them. And the boring side of my job... managing the replacement and rotation of vehicles and ensuring we have enough vehicles available for whatever may happen. All on a cozy safe airbase. I appreciate all the prayers but if you could throw a few in for the Airmen doing convoys and EOD missions.
I will write more as I can. I don't know how much access I will have to mySpace or FFN.
