Well, I'll be d***ed

Hey, all

Just found out I've been recalled to active military service. I report in 3 weeks. Next stop, the biggest sandbox in the world.

It looks as if this may be a short deployment. Maybe May or June of next year.

I'll keep in touch.

Good thing is, I'll be able to put one helluva downpayment down on a newish trailer when I return.

See you all in a few!

Brian

Thumbs up Dang!

Brian -- I wish they'd give you men and women a BIG bonus (that could tow a 31 footer!). Every week I see many, many deserving folks just returned from the Big Sandy. Be safe and be well. Our best to you and your family!!

Godspeed, Brian. We’ll keep you in our prayers. I’ve bookmarked this thread. Keep us up to date. Sincerely, if you need a “care package” from home, let us know. We’ll be more than happy to accommodate. PM’s will work. Anything more you can tell us about where you’ll be or what you’ll be doing? I know, it’s the internet, but I had to at least ask.

Don't have a pinpoint, yet. I'll be sure to keep you all up to date.

Thanks for all the well wishes!

Brian

I must say thanks to men like you! My son in in the big sand box now working for KBR. He is a disabled vet and this is his way to help. I will keep all of the folks in the sand box in my prayers. Hope to hear from you while you are there. Hope you tour is a shot one so you can get back to your airstream.

Keep in mind the other words of Jimmy Buffett, "I've got a big suspicion about ammunition, I never forget to duck!"
Please come back to us soon, and keep in touch from over there if at all possible. Thanks for your service!

Heartfelt thanks to all forum members and others serving in our armed forces. If it were'nt for you and those who proceeded you, none of us could feel free to pursue our dreams. Good luck Brian and come home safely. Godspeed.
