After Saturday's drill the Sergeant Major laid out for me how I could go on the deployment and spend time with each of the three Aviation units going. "Keep a rucksack packed and fly from place to place" is the plan. All three units form a task force, so I would just have to be sure I was part of the troop count in each location: The BOG report or Boots on Ground.
He asked if I was ready to go and wanted to go. I said I was. He said he would clear it with the commander. That's the topic of the next post.
