Counting down the hours

Wasn’t it just yesterday, another cold and rainy time, when I drove across on the ferry and made the left turn into RMAS? Actually it was Jan 2008 and my time here is just hours away from being at an end.

The Mole and I will head off camp at 0330 in the morning to catch the 0600 ferry. I am on line finishing up correspondence and transferring last minute details over to my successor while he packs the car. Duelling loadmasters is not the way to go.

In the last 30+ months I have become convinced that American and English are completely different languages, Armies are more like each other than are sister services within the same country and that any large system will screw you over given any opportunity at all!

I will let you know when we hit Germany. Might be tired, might be a bit crazy, but we will be home!

    It’s pretty amazing that you’ve finished another tour already! I loved your observations paragraph about what you’ve learned in the 30+ months you’ve been there. It will be so nice to be home again, I’m sure. There is no place like home.

    Hope the move home goes smoothly!
