From July 2004 to June 2007 I was deployed as a contractor in Bagram Afghanistan.
In January 2009 I deployed again, this time to Camp Phoenix in Kabul Afghanistan.
Before the end of July, 2013 my time here will be done.
Seven years of my life has been devoted to supporting the troops over here. My small part was to give the ones on my base a venue to play wargames. Over the last 4 years I've had over 30 gamers come through our little group and I've enjoyed knowing each and every one of them.
What does this mean for the blog?
I'll be honest, for the next several months I'll be extremely busy. There is the small matter of our being homeless and having no cars (3 Harleys but no cars) so I'll be busy getting all that set up. I'll also be learning the ropes in my newest job endeavor. For the last several years I've dreamed of opening a game store. With the economy and the way the manufacturers are treating the mom and pop shops, this doesn't seem like a good time. Plus, I have a family business that needs help so I'll be stepping into that.
All that said, other than a short burst here and there, this humble blog will likely not be updated much for the next several months. Once I'm back expect massive amounts of hobby related posting.
See you all soon
