Daughter of the desert


Well-Known Member
Well guys, my daughter is on her way to Iraq for her first tour. Should be boots on the ground sometime in the next 24 hours since they like to stop so much on the way. Ya know, I've been twice and will go again without a second thought (prolly by June), but it sure sucks to be the parent, and it's only just begun. So y'all please keep her in your thoughts for the next year. Now, I need a beer.

Don't worry, she'll be fine!

What branch and what job does she have?

She is an A/C technician in the Army. Stationed at Ft Riley, KS. I don't know if she will be doing A/C work though, she thinks their mission is to process equipment for re-deployment to Kuwait and US. Part of the draw-down process.

Thanks guys.

For anyone in the Summerville area, the Summerville Christmas Parade is Sunday, December 12 and they chose my theme this year, a tribute to troops serving overseas. They will tape it and send copies to the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. The jeep club I'm in is entered, we do it every year. Y'all come watch.
