It's Sunny And 83 ... In Iraq!
February 15, 2010
From the sound of things, the USA is getting covered in snow and lot's of it. This warm weather is not common this time of year in Iraq, but I will take it, esp. because we are starting to pack up.
Life at FOB Sykes is well, and the spirits are GREAT, as home is just weeks away. Our mission in Iraq is almost complete and we feel accomplished.
I am getting very anxious to get home to my family, as it is very hard to be a mom/wife/aunt/sister/friend almost 8000 miles away. This year been an experience, and something I will never forget anytime soon. Thank you to everyone who has supported me and my unit throughout this past year. Thanks is not enough, but it's what I have to offer.
I am going to include two address's of local soldiers from Woodbury who are currently deployed and I know would love to receive your wonderful care packages.
Please continue to pray for us as we prepare for home and our families who are awaiting our arrivals. Until Next Week......
