Seven Days — 7 Comments

  1. I recall coming back from Hungary.

    The problem was of course, that I promptly returned to Heidelberg, while everyone with whom I deployed was in Wurzburg.

    Going from being the commander of a deployed hospital, where I had status, and had a great rapport with my soldiers, to a place where no one knew what I did, or cared, well, I had never felt so alone in my life. I lost my family over the course of a bus ride.

    For all intents and purposes, I came home alone.

    I did make it back to the welcome home ceremony. One final bow.

    I say that getting back was the best and worst day of my life.

    I got all my troops safely home to their families.

    And I had to give them up.

  2. I thought there was a version which said God made the earth and man in six days, made woman on the seventh, and since then nobody has rested. It was obviously one of those military-inspired rumors back when I wore the uniform . . . a long, long time ago.

  3. I arrived in Kuwait on the 5th day and I will depart on the 7th day.

    Yup! I am just sitting around waiting for my time to depart Kuwait and head back to CRC
