Hello from Afghanistan

Yeah. LOL!

Finishing up a deployment and looking forward to wind and water instead of desert and mountains.

During my first deployment to Iraq, I found a copy of a sailing magazine and really got into the idea of learning to sail. Between trying to finish school and a baby coming, didn't get around to it before this current all expenses paid trip abroad came around. But this time, I plan on seeing it happen.

So hello!
