Pics from Deployment....

(ABOVE- something special about ATFC was that we were probably the only unit in Afghanistan that had all 5 services serving within the unit itself... this was dinner one nite when we just happened to have one of each service exactly and Gunny had his camera!)
(ABOVE- prolly my favorite picture, this is me in Leatherneck, in the South of Afghanistan, holding the CG flag!)

(ABOVE- Tifanny, me, and Kalita... the ATFC girls... it was just us three for most of the time in Bagram as the girls for ATFC..., Tiff my roomie made me laugh all the time!)
(ABOVE- LTC and me... there is a story about this "thumbs down".... I will forever be known as the ATFC officer who on a big VTC (pretty much including all sorts of national level offices) gave a thumbs down when I was on camera, responding to someone... it was actually pretty funny at the time and was totally appropriate when it happened... it gave us all a laugh and LTC even mentioned it in his departing speech about me when he gave me my award.
(ABOVE- COL and I... he's awesome! really awesome O-6 to work for!)
(ABOVE- my going away shadow box with flag and coins! this was award nite... I got a DMSM! which is freakin awesome!!!!!, LTC said a lot of nice words about me which I wasnt expecting to hear, it really made me feel proud for what I had done here... )

(ABOVE- my Confirmation at EASTER!! I finally got confirmed this Easter, I'm so happy about this! Thank you for everyone for supported me thru this! My Saints name is St. Catherine Laboure! on the right is my sponsor, Kelly, he helped me thru the whole process and was very supportive!)

(ABOVE- We definitely got plenty of care packages through out the months, this one in particular is when our LTC rcvd a box of hundreds of boxes of girl scout cookies!!! omg we ate them all in like a week!)

Almost done...

Whew... what a crazy 6months in Afghanistan... wow... this is the first I've had internet to be able to post in a long time...

I'm in Al Udeid again, not quite home yet, still doing some work for my unit... but you all know I'm coming home soon... I'll post some pictures over the next few days when I have time.

I miss home so much!

Michael is also far away from home, but we will be together soon and I can't wait!!
