Good news & Bad news

I got a call today from my dealer that sId my car has shipped and is scheduled for delivery on the 6/23/09. This is the good news. It has me so excited I can wait for the weekend to be over.

Now the bad news. I also found out today that I have to go on a unplanned 5 week deployment the day after I pick up the car. This really just put a damper on the thing. So I will have to wait 5 more weeks to really enjoy my new car.

Oh well, that's life in the military. Sorry for my rant but I had to get it out. It just has me a little bummed out because I am also losing out on my non refundable Las Vegas vacation I had planned for me & my wife in two weeks.

Thanks for listening again.

5 weeks? I didn't know there were deployments that short. I thought they were all on the order of 6 months.

Typically you can call the place where you made your travel arrangements and advise them of military movement or activity and they will refund your money. I learned from my experiences in the military years ago.

How long did they say it would be when you started?

Grats on making it back, btw.

This is an unplanned surge for a short mission. We just got back from a 7 month deployment in April and we were out the entire month of May also. With getting ready for work ups and so forth, I have been home around a total of 180 days over the last 2 1/2 years.

Well our tickets were booked through a last minute deal ticket broker and are non-refundable. I have already called and talked to them. No luck I guess I will just be out all that money.
