So I finally made it to Afghanistan.............

Yep I'm here. Flew in yesterday and am hating every minute of it.

Nah, that's not true. It's not that bad. I'm here as a contractor not a Marine/Soldier so It could be A LOT worse.

I'll post some pics when I get a chance. Internet is very spotty over here.

I'm missing my two babies so much though (Fiance & Camaro)!

Be safe over there. When you get back we will have to have a big welcome home party.

Well, I guess you and your Camaro can have a couple of days together first.

You didn't take your car with you as a condition of empolyment?

Be safe, take no chances. Great reason for a meet when you get back.

What are you building over there? Just assuming you must be there to build something.

Nah, not here to build. I work for a small subsidiary of Boeing. I fly and maintain a small UAV providing ISR (intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance) coverage for our customers.

Sweet, if they need an IT guy let me know. The first week is the worse man, it will get better. I have a wife and newborn back home. If you're ever at FOB Smart let me know, I'll buy you a bottle of water, lol.

Be safe.

I had a company recruiting me for a similar gig when I got out of the Navy. I loved the prospect of the money, just not the requirement to go back to the sand box for a year.

We've got quite a few guys with an IT background. I'm sure you could fit in just fine. You have to learn a lot about computers to do this job. I came from an aviation maintenance background so the computer part was a little tough for me. As long as you can maintain a clearance, you're in.

Yea, I was out here for 4 months last year. Had a good time, and then got a little too comfortable at home. But I'll get back in the groove pretty soon. I'm out here for 6 months this time. It really sucks being away from home though. I'm only doing this until I finish my Embry Riddle degree.

I was working on a professional aeronautics degree from them a couple of years ago. I wanted to get in the cockpit of a commercial airliner. Unfortunately that job market is way too unstable and I switched to another degree at Chapman.

Yeah, prof aero is what I'm working on. I got out of the Navy as an AM1 and with my previous college credit and military credit, they awarded me 54 credits towards a B.S. Only 66 to go!
