I have no idea what happened inside my head this week but I’ve had more than several cases of the Oh-Shitsies when writing, which is pretty much a rare phenomenon for me. No, really! Stop fucking laughing. Among those poorly-worded and ill-proofed products, yesterday’s post rates in there somewhere.
I realized about midday while casually monitoring comments that I’d clearly left a lot out key words and vomited some Armyspeak email other ones upon you folks to figure out on your own. Not fair. I will lay out what I know here. Someone might schwack me on the wrist for violating some concept of OPSEC (OPerations SECurity), but to be honest I can’t see how knowing where and when one worn-out, caustic, Army lieutenant colonel will enjoy an all-expenses paid (meals included! Yay!) trip can possibly screw anything up.
So the translation of yesterday’s post is basically this:
- I’m going to Afghanistan
- I’ll be leaving for there in March or April
- I plan on continuing blogging as best I can
- I have no idea what my address will be for care packages (you have no idea how touching that is – thank you)
The good news for you all is that you have quite a bit of material from me between now and then. The bad news is you’ll have to kind of go cold turkey on the rants for a bit at some point. As all things in the Army are subject to change, in triplicate, I’ll keep everyone updated when I know stuff. For the long-time followers, yes, Fred of course will go with me.
Rocking the fuck on…
