I haven't posted in awhile, but I am still around. I am at Fort Riley, waiting for my team to start training for our mission as advisers to the Iraqi Army. Training (well, in-processing anyway) starts next monday and my team should be all here by then. I still haven't met any of them in person, but have talked to one on the phone and corresponded with the team leader ( a Major) by email. I am looking forward to meeting these guys and getting started so our team can gel together in time for the deployment. I even know now where I will be going in Iraq, but I am not going to post that here, at least not now. I have to wait and talk to our intel guy about what can and cannot get posted (operations security). But I hope all five of my faithful readers still around and checking this blog!
