As some of you know, I have been in Afghanistan for the whole entire year. What a year it has been. I started my deployment in Camp Atterbury, Indiana back in early November 2009 and will finally be leaving here in less than 2 weeks. This has been the longest deployment I have ever been on and by far the most challenging, both mentally and physically (I've been to Iraq twice).
