Default I'm coming home...

Well, after 8 of the longest and shittiest months of my life, today I finally left Afghanistan. 4 days decompression in Cyprus and I'll be home by weeks end, with a bar on my tour medal for long service and a commander's coin for doing my job above and beyond expectations. It was utter hell at points, and I'm glad it's over, but I do feel a curious sense of accomplishment.

I've so happy for you. And thank you for your service (even though it's not to my country specifically).

Well, I'm finally home (Winnipeg I mean)! Long 8 months. It's good to be back, I look forward to settling in. I didn't get up to anything crazy in Cyprus, I've kind of outgrown it and I'm hoping to salvage with a certain young woman now that I'm home. We'll see.

My PTRD-41 is here, all the other guns I've bought while away are in the mail. Imagine my dissapointment on finding out the Cabela's I used to work at has, while I've been gone, discontinued stocking .30-40 Krag. Although I'm not sure why we carried it in the first place, it's kind of a specialty item up here.

Hope that goes well. I don't know a whole lot of guys who were able to keep relationships going while on deployment (I'm sure you do, too). But...nothing's impossible.
