Wow! I have a lot of updates!

>I haven't posted anything since March of 2009... I have a few updates since then... 

>Lets see, I am still at Fairchild AFB, and i really do love it. I like the base not the weather and i LOVE my lab (ok except for the select 2 people i don't really get along with). I got Airman of the Quarter for my squadron in June. I'm still a PTL(physical training leader) for  my squadron and I'm really involved with that. 

>I got to go home in June and see my family, i got to meet a lot of family that i haven't met before. That was a good trip, i hope to see everyone again soon.

>I finished my CDCs early and was upgraded in my work level. I started taking classes at Park University on base. I am just my 6 management credits short of my CCAF. After i get my CCAF i want to start a lab program thru either University of Cincinnati or University of North Dakota. Both have online Lab degrees. If i get my degree before my 6 years is up i want to commission and become an officer. As of right now i want to continue a career in the Air Force. I am thinking that if i stay in after i get my lab degree i will cross train into Radiology(another long tech school) then i will get a degree in Radiology so i will have two degrees in Lab and Radio..and i will get my Ultrasound tech license. Then i might try to commission after 10 years and become a Officer. 

>I just found out that i will be deploying to Baghdad, Iraq on January 10th. I'm going to be a TCN(Third Country Nationals) escort. So pretty much my job is to watch the third country nationals work and make sure they are not trying to get any information about our base. I'm really excited to go. I wasn't going to get to deploy but i have a really great Major that was pretty much fighting for me to go. I will keep everyone updated on my deployment. For now i have a month till i leave and a lot of things to get done before i go.

Thats about it for now!
