Jumped the gun but it's OK

Yesterday, I posted that Mark was in Kuwait awaiting transport back to the States. It turns out that I was wrong. I misread the fact that he hadn't checked in as evidence that he was in transit.

While we were out to a luncheon yesterday, he left a message saying he was still at BIAP as in Baghdad International in BAGHDAD.

Needless to say, I started the day today in a very dark, poisonous funk. Even my little border collie couldn't cheer me up. But the Family Readiness Group (FRG), God bless them, weighed in a little while ago and said all of Bravo Company is Kuwait.

And Mark followed with an e-mail to his Mom: "well i'm in a place i've been before... it starts with a K and ends with UWAIT." He will be out bound shortly and on schedule for a Saturday arrival at the Green Ramp, Pope Air Force Base, North Carolina.

Me oh my!

You got that right. We are now dealing with the really serious issues for him: How do you transfer your Itunes collection from the old computer to the new one. We're ready for those.
