First Post

I'm not the first reservist to hear he is getting deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom and I certainly won't be the last.
This blog is about sharing my experiences and thoughts with friends and family before, during, and after my deployment.
Thanks to Blackfive, Smash, 2Slick, and Greyhawk (the granddaddy of them all) for the inspiration. I have been reading their blogs and others for months now, even before I got the news that I'm deploying. I don't ever hope to have this blog be as popular or as interesting as theirs, but it's nice to see them set a high standard.

hmmm.... my first post. That wasn't so hard. now if i can just keep up with it.
