well guys i just found out the news 2 days ago and now it has set in, i have to be to ft.leonardwood by the 12th of sept. for 25 days of processing and stuff and then i dont know where i am gonna end up, and it says that it could be a max of 2yrs!! I cant believe that i am going, it was one of those deals that i just never thought that i would get called being i havent been in the actual reserves for a couple of years now, i went in to the irr and just kinda forgot about my commitment. I guess my biggest concern is my g-friend being a full time student having to pay all of our bills now and take care of everything w/out me! I guess its a good thing that i didnt go on my annual duckhunting spree this year and buy a bunch of stuff that i wont use for a while!! So i also guess i wont be pulling those bull gills through the ice this year either!!
Alright well i am done now, i just wanted to tell all of u guys and wish u all the best of the next few seasons coming up and appreciate every time u are out there!!!
I totally understand my commitment to serve this wonderful country and i raised my right hand and i am required to do whatever my country calls for!!!

god bless u all and try to save some for me for when i get back!!!

I always let a few birds fly threw without touching a feather. ( purely intentional of course wink.gif ) The first one this year will be for you when you get back. God bless you! Thank you for your service!

I was over in desert storm with a patriot missle unit. Was only there for 9 months but it sure was nice to receive items from home. I'll release a few gills for you this winter.

Canvasback,Even though my military service was a long time ago, I can still remember the empty, hollow feeling I got when I knew my buddies back home were going duck,pheasant,grouse, or deer hunting. I can not thank you enough for standing tall and doing what you swore you would do. It's MEN like you that make this country and this site great! If they would only take old farts like me, I would gladly go for you. NO B.S.!! I am proud of you and proud to be associated with you on FM!

YOU CAN'T BS AN OLD BS'ER!

WASSSIT, Was there as well. Were you
with 1/7 2/7 or 5/7 ADA. If so, I was your
Crypto support......

Canvas Kid, Wish you good luck and godspeed

It has been in the news a lot lately about
the pull-up of IRR for duty. Recruitment
for the regulars is now at an all time low.

Can.kid,

thank you so much for going but I know your heart is heavy. My friend did two trips to iraq and is now back. I do know that the military helps with keeping the bill collectors at bay while you are gone. Not sure if it holds true if you are ot married. maybe something to look in to.

good luck and be safe. The fish and birds will only be bigger when you get back to them.

Canvasback, God bless you and keep you safe! Keep in touch with us if you can. If you need anything let us know - maybe we could send you a Johnny Cash CD (saw your profile). smile.gif That'd give those folks over there a real piece of Americana!

Again, take care and thanks for your service!

Nick

CB, I fear for you, I pray for you, and I am proud of you, as all those who have posted before me are. I wish you a safe tour and hope you can make a difference in many lives while you are there. Remind those around you of the buddies you have and haven't even met. let them know we are proud of them too, and hoping they are back soon. And above all, thank you.

I don't pretend to know all the reasons why our "Best" people need to secure another man's country in order to protect our way of life here.
I do know this,...It is a hard and difficult thing you are doing on behalf of your country. I thank you for it. I hope "our" countrymen can learn to do at least a little better job of appreciating the sacrifices made by our men and women of uniform. I personally have a difficult time telling myself I deserve it. Come back safely to enjoy the land you love. God Bless-
Troy
