    Cowboys game, then Afghanistan!

    Here I was excited about the season ahead, when low and behold I came down on to deploy in Sep (Active Army soldier). The deployment doesnt phase me, leaving my kids and missing the Giants season is what did. Hopefully I am put on a FOB (Forward Operating Base) with some tv or internet access to be able to catch a game here and there. But every cloud has a silver lining.....my awesome girlfriend went out and bought tickets for the season opener!! Section 108 row 8!!!! She knew I was bummed about missing the season and the game was my going away present...top top it off she also got me an Eli Manning ELITE jersey....I am so pumped. Can't wait to drive up from Virginia for the game!! ....a week after the gamer then off to Afghanistan. But at least I get to watch a game live this season...GO BIG BLUE!!! (oh and ironically she is from Texas)...go figure..lol

    The unit I am going with is splitting up into 5 different place (I am in a Combat Support Hospital) So not really sure. Yeah I heard Kandahar is like being on a
    regular base almost with lots of comforts. Then again Air Force runs it and you guys always have the best set ups..lol. Sorry to hear you couldnt roll out, thanks for the well wishes bro!

    Good luck and maybe the G-men will give you something to cheer about when you're over there.
