We got told our tour has been shortened to 12 months. We are excited of course. That's conditional, since we are still on orders for 15 months, that could still change but no one is expecting it to.
Kevin should be home on his R&R in about 5-6 weeks which will be nice. He won't have much time at all when he goes back, about 6 weeks or so. We are so ready for this deployment to be over. Still not sure what lies in store for us as far as a new assignment but we are ready to move on to a new zip code and new adventures (maybe one that doesn't involve sand for a bit).
