Good deal. Hopefully you wont have much time outside the wire. BAF is huge and has the highest standard of living in Afghan. However, it is a HUGE target. Be safe. Be well.

To the assclown posting about a lost war.... Go Glock yourself. Its not about might, right or diplomatic policy. To the average kid, its about watching your fellow soldiers, airmen, sailors 6 and hopefully making it home safely.

Thanks guys, currently stuck in Germany waiting for the flight crew to get their rest so we can get back on the C-17.

Detectorist, my job is as follows:
When its time to go anywhere, I oversee every Battalion in my Brigade in getting their equipment prepared properly for transporting, either by air, sea, land or rail. I have to be familiar with all of the standards and criteria for each mode because they are all different. Any thing hazardous they are bringing along is a whole new ball game. I have to get permission from every country our hazardous cargo is traveling through before it enters. If they say no, I find alternate methods.

Then I order as many trains, planes, boats or rail cars I feel we need to get our equipment moved.

Then I get to order transportation for the passengers as well, either bus, or plane.

So for example, a deployment with 2500 personnel and over 1500 pieces of equipment can easily require over 8 passenger planes, maybe 5 Air Force cargo planes to fly sensitive items (they don't show up unless I submit them load planes for each type of aircraft, then they decide the type of plane I get), and ships to sail the rest of the equipment.

This job is a pain in the rear end. My success is based off of the information others are providing me. Cooperation is not always that great.

My wife is going in May for a 6 month deployment (civilian DOD). She missed being deployed while in the Navy Reserves due to maternity leave and has always regretted not serving on active duty. Now she gets a chance to do so in a different role (she volunteered).

I'm going over in 2 months. Back when I was young in the Army, the SE Asia thing was winding down so I missed that. Now as a grandpa civilian contractor I finally get to go. This is my 3rd or 4th attempt and I'm excited and nervous.

Stay safe out there.
