Well, it is happening to me. I am going to be one of those parents who has a child serving in the military overseas. Shay received word that she will be deploying to Sather Air Base in Baghdad. She has to be there by Jan 15th so not sure when she has to leave or which route she is taking. Lots of things to find out and lots of things to do. I did find a website that helps me determine what time it is and what the weather is. Current local time in Baghdad. I guess I am going to have to blog more so I keep my sanity. I am very proud of her and I know she is going someplace that is very safe. But it does not keep me from being nervous. Keep with me on this journey.
I am retired from the Army after serving 22 years. I recently moved to Florida, not my choice, but my heart is in Washington State. I am married to my best friend. He must be, otherwise I would never have moved to Florida! His job is what brought us here and is what I hope will take us away some day soon.
