Well as of today 1542 hours i signed my tasking letter for my third deployment. My first was to a base in the UAE, second was FOB hoping in Afghanistan for four months each. This one will be back ______ to support the flying operations for the operations in the middle east by providing fire figther functions if needed, and this will be a six month tour.

As a fire fighter, ive done and seen a lot. Fought fires on Aircraft with weapons going off, built FOBs, worked the main gate in the over watch tower done convoys. You name it ive done it in the last 6 years of my career. Who knows what will come in my next 4.:aagh:

My tour is almost done. I will be home at the end of the week. When I land in Arizona it would have been 202 days since I was home, that is 6 months and 18 days of service. This has been my longest tour and the longest ive been away and Im ready and very much looking forward to being home and getting back to "my life". Thanks to those who have helped and or supported me.
