Ray Goes to War; Global War on Terrorism

On July 20, at 8:50am, I received a phone call from my section Sergeant advising me that I have been called up for duty in Afghanistan.

It's unfortunate and bad timing that the callup occurred so soon after I rejoined the reserves. Also unusual, is the number of people: 10.

Apparently, another reserve unit was called up and they didn't have enough people, so the Army cherry-picked people with certain skills or levels of experience.

I'm still working on my current project and will post one more time to let everyone know that I am finished and to provide more details of the future.

Thank you everyone!
