Still Stateside

A few people have emailed to ask whether I've arrived in Iraq yet. Unfortunately, whereas I'd expected (and hoped) to have been deployed by now, I am stuck at Ft. Bragg for the time being.

Basically, I'm caught in the middle of a dispute between Army G-1 and the two commands in Iraq that requested I be assigned to them. Until the Army decides what to do with me, I'm attending the Special Operations Command's Civil Affairs course here.

I'll provide a more in-depth assessment of life here at Bragg (and how it has changed in the 7.5 years since I was last stationed here) later in the week.
