I'm baaaa-aaack.

I'm currently at Ft. Benning. We arrived at about 6 this morning, and I was done turning in all my issued gear by 1300. After that I took a SHOWER. I was absolutely foul, not just dirty, foul. My uniform was drenched with sweat during the bag-drag at Ali, and I never got to change anything for the next 48 hours. I have diaper rash and have advised SPC M by e-mail to make sure he has at least one change of undergarments in his carry-on.

I want to give a huge shout-out to the good folks at the Bangor, Maine airport. At 3:30 in the morning the veterans were out to give us a big welcome and they have the snack bars and souvenir shops open. WiFi is also free. After updating Facebook I went to the snack bar and found they had lobster rolls. I've never had one, but have seen them on the Food Network. I ordered two, coffee, and a giant brownie and went to fetch MAJ T. The nice ladies there made those lovely, lovely rolls stuffed with big chunks of lobster and we walked away happy. Any day that starts with lobster can't be bad.

Gear turn-in at CRC was painless and I'm now in civvies and headed to the DFAC. I should be home Thursday.

Good to know you made back to the States safe and sound.

And even though it's been a really long time since I've had lobster at all, those lobster rolls sound delicious! I think I now have another food on my list of recent cravings.

I think it's just lovely that there were people to meet you at the airport, a practical way of expressing their gratitude. Enjoy being home.
