Back to Business
First I want to thank Mr. Higginbotham for his time in writing his view of our departure ceremony. Many of us agree with his assessment that our departure is overdue and we'd like to get the show on the road.
However, the Army still has some training we need to complete before we leave in a couple of weeks. The Army calls it "validation." Something tells me we are going to make the trip regardless of our "validation," if only because half of our equipment is already halfway around the globe on a ship.
Since our return to Yuma, we have celebrated Capt. Heins's birthday (a company outing to the base club where many experienced the wrath of the local favorite concoction called a "Snake Bite"). We've completed the mounted and dismounted land navigation and convoy training part "validation."
Now, straight from the Army's "Certified Combat Ready" cookbook, we're working on a four-day exercise where we pretend to be in Iraq, simulating everything from flight missions to mortar attacks on our hangar. Next up, final packing and loading of our gear and folded Black Hawks. The time is very near.
