Well, this past weekend I made it back to Ft. Dix, NJ, where we all started the mobilization process. Now, we are demobilizing (demob), which basically means we are getting any medical, administrative and logistical issues cleared up before going on leave. As the Company Commander, I've got a few other things to do, but the process is moving along rather smoothly at this point. Rather than speculate on my return to Knoxville, I'll just say that I expect to be home no later than the 19th, but any day sooner is fine with me.
For those of you who might be interested in the "next chapter of my life" that I have mentioned several times in previous posts, I'll post another update in the near future. For now, I just want to get finished with the process and then begin starting the new adventure.
