it is officially over

As a follow-up to the previous post:

Our LT's trip from Kuwait to Colorado was about 40 hours long, with two refueling stops (Germany and Bangor, ME) and 14 hours to go through U.S. Customs (where I don't know). His plane was delayed in Bangor due to snow and ice. The welcoming ceremony was then pushed back to 5:30 p.m. MST on New Year's Eve. We were told the speeches by a two-star general and a colonel (the Brigade Commander?) were refreshingly short.

I believe our LT has a pass this week but needs to report next week for four days of "reintegration training." Starting the 12th, the entire 3-61st Cavalry gets thirty days block leave. Our LT and his lovely wife plan on taking a two-week trip traveling up the west coast to visit family and friends.
No plans to visit NNY. :(

Be blessed.
