I got back to work last Monday to find my short-term deployment had been terminated. It took me a couple days to get to ground truth ... somehow, a KM type was identified in Norfolk. He's apparently in the inner circles of both General Patraeus (former COMISAF) and General Allen (current COMISAF). So they didn't need Joe Shit the Rag Man.
This came at a good time, I'd prefer not to have to be watching my back for a loony Haji with a gun bent on avenging the singeing of the koran.
Maybe another time. But now, at least, I get to enjoy my homebrew Pilsner when the bottle conditioning is done.
