I’ve been back in Iraq for about a week now, still riding the wave of relaxation from my leave, but being battered by a nagging sickness and lack of a normal sleep regime. Although I hear of folks not taking their mid tour leave in order to avoid the stress of it all, with the exception of the regret of not seeing my mom, dad and brother more than I did, I’m very glad I went home.
Now, we are in the home stretch of the deployment with anywhere between 70 to 100 days left before we get released from our indentured service. The military likes to keep things vague for reasons that I’ll never know or understand.
