12 Months down

Well we've made it. We're at the 12 month mark. Because their deployment was shortened by aprox 6 weeks (from a 15 month deployment) we have now aprox 6 weeks left. I'm READY. I know Chad is. I would love to say "oh it'll fly by" but since this is our 5th deployment, I KNOW it won't. I know that it'll drag and will be the longest part of our deployment. We can see the light at the end though and I'm thankful.

We're almost done, almost done. I just keep repeating that to myself. I'm going to make a paper chain for the kids so we can count down until he's home. Keep praying if you will! Our battalion's had a rough couple of weeks. Sgt. Russell who killed the 5 soldiers, is in our company. Prayers please.

God Bless
