Given the work I do and such, I think I'll need a military icon...
So, as we merged onto the NYS thruway to come home Sunday morning, we merged into a convoy of military flatbed trucks loaded up with humvees. Long freaking line of them. They were painted with the green and brown camo instead of the light brown/grey desert pattern. So, probably not headed to Iraq(unless they were headed to get painted first).
We have another guy being sent to Iraq from the project. His first day on active duty will be the day before Thanksgiving(what planning). So, he's scrambling to finish up stuff here and at home to make sure everything that isn't finished can wait 18 months for him to get back.
We still haven't heard really from Justin Lutz, who is on active duty for the Marines. They activated him to train for the olympics. He's a runner. I'm not sure if he is in the area or off to warmer regions.
