My hopes and dreams of being out of the army got crapped on today. I got orders calling me back to active duty for a tour in iraq. Gotta report to Ft. Jackson by May 9th. I'm the 13th person from my old battalion to get recalled this week. It will be good for me though, nice tax free paychecks!

Keep your head on a swivel, and stay hydrated. We don't want a desiccated soldier coming back to us! And that's the other thing--you are coming back to us!

Ft Jackson is about 15 min from me. Its where I did basic as well, talk about a bummer bro. But good luck over there, keep your head down and moving. Plus a few extra bucks always helps out

Thanks guys. I only wish i wasn't going with some national guard sleepy marvin brigade. I've spent the last 4 years doing nothing but intel work with the nsa, and I really don't want to teach these guys how things work. Hopefully they've done some good training/deployed before. No offense to those in the guard intended.

When you leave, take a shit load of water bottles if you can. I think it was here that I read they were having trouble getting water and food to the troops. Good luck man!

I've only been out 3 months. All 4 years I've been active I spent the whole time in Texas and they deploy me now! I'm a 35n SIGINT Analyst.
