Back To Iraq: Duggin Arrives In Early Morning

SPC Jennifer Duggin

Hello ... from Northern Iraq, life, FINALLY! I left home last Tuesday December 15th and finally made it back to FOB Sykes about 1 a.m. today, December 22nd.

Life at FOB Sykes is great, as the Christmas spirit is upon us! I arrived back to an office full of care packages to share with my fellow soldiers. WOW! what an amazing site to see all the wonderful things that everyone has sent to us.

I am excited to get the packages opened and shared with everyone. It's 64 and rainy here, but it's also 3 days until Christmas, and everyone seems to be in good spirits as we are getting closer to the day we come home:)

Life at home was amazing, and all that I expected it to be, I am so ready to be home for good.

I will say in advance to everyone who has mailed care packages, emails, thoughts, prayers and letters....THANK YOU, as you will never truly know how much we appreciate you.

May each of you have a Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year. God Bless and God Speed!!!!
Until Next week......
