I finaly made it back home after the longest 6 months of my life. I got home at around 1:30am eastern time on friday. I am convinced that the only way I was able to make it through that deployment is because of the sanity I gained from the insanity of this forum. I was on here every day, for most of the day for almost 6 months. Thanks for the help guys! I owe you one... If you are ever in NC in the future let me know, I'll treat you to a smoke.
