Thumbs up Thank you to all Festers and especially ot!

In less than 36 hours I'll be getting on a plane to my first deployment to Iraq. Wanted to take this time to thank everyone for all the laughs and e-company/friendship you have all provide me since having become an active member in this sub forum. You all matter to me in a more significant way than you probably think. Whether or not I've interacted with you directly, I've grown fond of all the personalities that make this place so great and I will definitely miss it! Even though I've been more of a lurker these past few months I still check ot at least 8-10 times a day and read most of the threads. I dunno how I'll manage without staying up to date! Someone's gonna have to make me cliff notes .

Well take care everyone and leave a light on for me when I come back. (I'll still probably have intenet but I dunno how often I'll be able to check it. Lets just say I'm not admin for this deployment)

Ps I'll be sure to drop my apo for anyone interested.
