Tomorrow marks the end of month 11 of my 2nd deployment. These next 3-4 months are going to drive me nuts. If I wasn't married it'd probably be easy, but I'm starting to lose touch with reality.

Btw, it has nothing to do with "combat". In April I became a fobbit dealing with detainee movements.

Just seeing if anyone is over the 12 month hump yet.

Getting close, but I won't be here that long after my 365.

Starting my 5th as a contractor. The money's outstanding, but this incoming has gotta stop. Did 3 years at Balad and the IZ is getting worse then that.

No shit dude. I had a mortar land 40m in front of my truck as we were passing through.

I'll be here 12 months next week.
It's starting to really grind on me.

detainee movements.

Is that what the lump in the corner,with the water bottle beside it, is?

getting close on the year. Seems to fly at times and drag other times. Not married so don't miss much from home minus the beer and the bike.
