It is 1700, Monday 24 SEP 12 & I am sitting in the Admiral Club at O’Hare International Airport, just a few hours from home. Unless something crazy & unexpected happens, I will be sleeping in my bed tonight.
I intended to chronicle my travels home, but I did not and I blamed it on lack of easy internet access at Camp Atterbury. The full story is I didn’t try very hard…
So here is part one of I’m not sure how many more, of my trip out of Afghanistan. Things actually went remarkably well – no complaints at all.
We were delayed at Apache for a few days because of the hazy weather, but that actually was a blessing. You see, we had been scheduled to be at KAF for a few days, but those days were instead spent at Apache. Anyone will tell you KAF is the less desirable place to wait.
So, luck was on my side and we left Apache late afternoon on the 16th. We arrived at KAF and were able to squeeze onto a flight leaving the very next day. Within 18 hours of landing at KAF we were already on our way out. Good deal!
The next installment will chronicle my short wait at KAF and arrival at Manas…maybe tomorrow or the next day.
Thanks for looking!
