A few days later, we left. We high tailed it as fast as an aircraft carrier can to the Indian Ocean. When we got there, we were ready to go. We had spent the first part of our "cruise" getting briefed, going over plans, going over intelligence, etc. But then--it happened. We arrived and were set for our first set of flights. I had never before carried a gun when I flew or gone over survival plans in such detail. I am not going to lie--I was a tiny bit (ok a lot nervous) and my job was only to tank fighter aircraft on their way to do the real work. It was a crazy night followed by many crazy months. There were a few nights that I got back and made sure to send out an email to family making sure they knew I loved them.
Happy Running All. If you see a Military member today make sure to thank them for all of their hard work and sacrifice.
Thanks to B for helping me write this post. You all know writing in complete thoughts and sentences is not my forte.
