He's coming home!!!!

I got the official call this evening.

Gunner actually called me this morning from his FOB and told me he was waiting on a helicopter to BIAP. He called me tonight from BIAP and they were boarding to head to Kuwait.

Not much long and I'll have homecoming #4 to tell!!!!

I started getting nervous tonight. I don't know what to wear. I still need to clean out the car. I have to work the next two days, and then he will be here. Not too much OPSEC since they publish his arrival time on the website.

So I am still here, still waiting, but tonight I put out the trash cans for the last time this deployment. I don't know if I can believe that he will be home....soon.....

I am over the moon for your family! Deciding what to wear is a good distraction for you, but you know he will just be looking at all your shining faces. WELCOME HOME TO ALL OF YOU, because you have ALL been deployed this last year.

That's excellent & happy news. My husband is soon deploying for Afghanistan, he was called up from the IRR and must report to Georgia soon... I remember the feeling of when he came home from Iraq back in 2007 - it's great isn't it?

Great news indeed! Thanks so much for sharing this part of your life with us, especially those of us who have never been through it. I think blogs like yours should be required reading for non-military people. The insight is priceless.
