I’ve got drill this weekend again. It seems that there is just enough time between drill weekend to kind of forget about the deployment and the military. Its very different when I put the uniform on. It’s kind of like having an alternate identity, and the switch is triggered by the uniform. I know it happens to a lot of people in the guard. We kind of do have to be able to switch it on and off.
Anyways, all this gets me thinking about the mobilization. Its scary to think that there is less than 2 month before I leave. I have a million things to do before that happens. In a way I really just want to get there and start the deployment. The anticipation causes so much worry and stress that it know it will be easier once I am there and can look forward to coming home instead of having it loom over my head.
