    I'm outta here!!

    Sometime after x-mas the 106 RQW and it's Pavehawks are deploying to the SWA, ( Southwest Asia, not airlines ) This is my first trip and I'm excited to do my part. I can't say I'm nervous, we really have a tight group going which will make things easier. I've slowly let my friends and family in on the trip, and waited til the end to tell mom. Anyhow, I should have net access over there but I wanted to say goodbye for now. If anyone wants to APO addy send me a PM and I'll provide it when I know it!!

    Nice man! The McGuire KC10s do 2 month deployments to Bagram. I can only imagine the type of air traffic that base sees though!

    Glad you're having a good time, Nick. Keep a list of what you're seeing out there. I'll expect a full report on my desk at 0900!

    Be safe out there.
