waiting for the Air Force — 6 Comments

  1. The perfect exemplar of “hurry up and wait”.

    What comes to mind: Christmas Eve day, 20 years ago this dec, at ft Lewis, freezing cold 0500 formation and march over to the gym to wait for flight to Germany. No coffee for hrs because no extra mess folks anywhere because of holiday. MREs all day. Flights cancelled several times…finally left gym about 1745. Arrived evening of christmas day…”what are you doing here now?”

    Gotta love the stories our Army experiences provide.

    Hang in there…you’ll be there soon and then will be able to get on with what you do so very well. You are right, though, the waiting is the worst.

  2. Believe it or not, it was 105 F in the sun here yesterday and that is continuing today!

    But we have the comforts of home.

  3. They actually called it LSA? Thought you were going to be talking about tubes and ventilators!

    Read, knit, doze. Repeat. Knowing you, you will be working 24-7 once you get to Bagram. 110! In September?

    You will have quite a mountain view, it seems.
