Long Overdue Update

I have been extremely busy for the past 30 days. The command I am attached to has been transformed under NATO command, under the NATO Flag. It has been a learning experience for everyone. I've said farewell to some of my troops as they head back to the states, and welcomed and trained their reliefs. I was able to get some face-time on the Today show and I got to watch Navy Beat Army at 3:30am...overall it has been a great month.

Over Thanksgiving, I was sent out into the field on a mission with the ANA (Afghan National Army). It was unbelievably crazy and in a morbidly sick way, unbelievably fun...For my family and friends, I'll be happy to share the story over a pint of stout or a cold IPA when I return. It's just not cleared for this forum.

I haven't had as much time to work the VCR missions as I would like, but there are troops working the COIN side of the house everyday and we still need your help.

Until next time: Keep your eye on a shipmate, head on a swivel and stand by to Give'em Hell! Hooah!...and Happy Festus.
