Just wanted to let everyone know that he found out a couple of days ago that he is definitely going to Iraq or Afghanistan and may find out today or early next week which one. He said the average length of deployment is a year- does that sound right? That sounds wayyyy too long to me (of course, 1 minute over there sounds too long to me). FH and I live in Atlanta and will drive out to Ft. Jackson this weekend as he has Sunday off and may have Saturday off, too. We are taking him out to dinner, going to the zoo, maybe going to see a movie. Whatever he wants to do, basically. I hate this.
