Last Day in Turkey

Hard to believe the deployment is over. We hop on a plane to return home tonight. I'm part of the front end crew and will be responsible for getting everyone home safely. I just need to remember the directions--fly North to England and then hang a left. Got it.

Just finished John Adams by David McCullough, a book I thoroughly enjoyed. John Adams was truly a remarkable man who lived in remarkable times. I really liked how the people back then wrote letters to each other. These letters provided such an insight into their states of mind and thoughts about a variety of things. I guess that these blogs are just a different version of those same letters and serve the same purpose. Like my friend Todd has said, one day our grandchildren will go back and, hopefully, learn a little bit about what made us tick through these blogs.

Next post will come from the Great Northwest.

I really enjoyed 1776 By DM. Made me realize that we almost were not a country.

Anyways...
