Iraq, My Next Big Adventure
Sorry I have been MIA from myspace and facebook for a while, Holidays and recent workload have just had me swamped! So I wanted to give everyone an update on what has been going on with me lately. I have had a lot of great opportunites open up for me at work lately which are going to make for some exciting new adventures. My big news is that I am going to be traveling to Kuwait and then Iraq for work. Unfortuneatly, due to security reasons I can't reveal exactly when I am travling or where, but I can say I am leaving pretty soon. I am going over with the company I work for which is a contracter for the military and I will be working on military installations. Again, I can't say exactly what I am doing, but I will say that my work is all part of a larger effort to begin bringing our troops home and letting the Iraq peole run their own country! I am going to be in country for about a month as well as in Kuwait before and after my Iraq visit. HERE IS THE GOOD NEWS, I am planning on bringing a digital camera and doing weekly picture posts as well as a video blog of my experience over there. I am going to blog about and video as much of my experiences as possible so that everyone can see a little bit into the daily life of a contractor working in Iraq. I also am hoping to get some time with the men and women of our armed forces that are stationed in Iraq, ask them some questions and have them send some messages back to the USA. I am going to be very busy between now and my deployment so I won't have much time to be online, however I hope that everyone will check back on my site and look out for my pictures and video blogs. I will do my best to check mail but please keep in mind that my interenet access is going to be very limited as well as my time. As most know I am not a very political person, however I am filled with pride and joy to know that I am playing a very small role in helping to GET OUR TROOPS HOME!
Keep checking back for updates!!
