Flip flops suck

For the next 3 months I will be gathering bits and pieces of knowledge that will help me prepare for and succeed during this embed in Afghanistan.  The latest tidbit came from the Lieutenant who will be guiding me through my time in-country.  Lt. Fischer wrote: “Bring some crocs for the showers (I’m sure you know this but flip flops suck). That’s really about it.” If it were only that simple.  😉

I received a FedEx notification that I will be receiving a 36 pound box in a couple of days.  Inside that box will be my newly purchased armor & helmet.  36 pounds?!?  Better get training.
