Great fun in Mississippi

Another joyful day in the humid, miserable place that is Camp Shelby. Nothing too exciting today. Turning in a few barracks, sitting around the office, and a pre-flight briefing on our journey. Sounds fun, doesn't it?

Tomorrow proves to be much more of the same: turning in barracks, sitting around the office, and I might even pack tomorrow. That might be too ambitious though. We'll see.

We have new neighbors in our barracks. Today the support platoon retards moved in. Well, I take that back. Retards is a little strong and mean; however, a better word does not come to mind. They're loud, obnoxious, and they are in our AO. Only [OPSEC] days of them though, and then we get to leave this bungalow and enjoy the comfort that is Camp Pheonix.

Not a whole lot of other stuff is going on right now. Just packing up the office slowly (aka: throwing things away that aren't needed anymore) and clearing post. Things have pretty come to a complete crawl for now, but will flip back into super speed when we get in country.

I'm ready though. For one, we get to leave Camp Shelby, but we also get to start our countdown. We have something to look forward to then. Plus I'm anxious to see what Afghanistan is like. I'm anxious to see what the world is like outside of America. I've never left our borders before, never came even close. I'm excited.

I plan to take lots of pictures while I'm on this journey. How else am I going to back up my story of "HEY GUYS! I SAW A CAMEL!!!"

I miss you guys at home. See, there is no need to worry about me. I'm fine. I just have my moments.

I love you guys. Stay safe.

God is good. All the time.
