We're catching a "freedom bird" back to the states on the morning of the 11th, just barely two weeks later than we were supposed to leave. For those of you wondering, my soldier was found NOT GUILTY of rape but guilty of adultery and indecent behavior. He was reduced to the rank of Private and sentenced to 45 days confinement to Kuwait. Funny, that's how I would describe the last part of this deployment.
Anywho, that puts me in Chicago I-don't-know-when. I'm starting to wonder if I'll be able to make it before the 20th. Well crap in a handbag, if this little excursion didn't just ruin all my plans for leave.
Or maybe it just altered my plans and now I'll have to include a trip to Carbondale, IL.
