En route to Afghanistan

Saying good bye to your family is never easy, and knowing that you will be leaving them for several months, going to a country where war is consider a way of life, is never a warm feeling either. My travels began with a hug and a kiss to my love ones, then I boarded a plane to my first destination and refuel stop in Leipzig Germany. During my first stop, my comrades and I waited while our plane re-serviced. I sat in my seat and realized how much I missed Germany. Once upon a time, I was stationed here.
