Yes, my second time to Afghanistan, once to Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, & Bahrain. I have been mobilized since Mar2003. Each of the before mentioned deployments were one year each. The other five years, I was at Fort Lewis training Soldiers to deploy around the world.

I hope I can start and enjoy my hobby now.... ;)

Thanks Jennifer,

I am back! I am back in the US. I just completed my last overseas tour. I cannot believe how tired I am. I keep breathing a huge sigh of relief.

Wow! You live in Sunnyvale, CA. I used to live in Cupertino, CA. Sunnyvale used to be one of my old stomping grounds.

Hello Jennifer!

        Good to have you aboard this Forum. I was wondering about the locomotive in your avatar, is that one from Niles Canyon? I'm going to have to get down there one of these days to check out thier operation.  Regards, Bob B.
