And no, I'm not standing on a street corner dressed in a sandwich board sign proclaiming this news. But our replacemnts arrived yesterday night and today was our first full day of getting them trained up to replace us as seamlessly as possible. This won't be a long post, but it was too momentous to ignore and not let everyone know. The last few weeks have been pretty busy with training up the Navy replacements who arrived here at the beginning of the month and doing all the odds-and-ends logistical stuff to get us out of here as well. We also had our Team Leader replaced as well (scheduled change - he didn't get fired); so it's definately been a busy few weeks.
Now all we have to do is train these guys up for a week, pray for good weather for the flights out, and pray for a quick turn-around once we're are back at our Redeployment Center back home getting all the outprocessing stuff done.
Can't wait to get back home to the wife, dogs, friends, food, and of course - GRAD SCHOOL.
I'll keep you all posted...for now, off to coordinate the exit some more. Hopefully some photos and such this weekend.
