It Has Begun

Well, Kelly is off on his new adventure. He left yesterday and flew to CA and will spend the next month at Camp Roberts. In case any of you didn't know, or care, Kelly has changed jobs in the Guard. In December he was promoted to E-8, 1st Sargent of Bravo Co, 141 Bn. That means that he is in charge of a Company of soldiers, about 100+. This is part of the group that was called up for deployment so instead of volunteering like last time, this time he didn't have a choice to go. After spending two drills with this group he was moved to the Headquarters Bn to be their 1st Sgt for the deployment and will go back to Bravo when they return. Anyway, things have been pretty crazy the past few months as he has tried to keep up with everything. He will be coming home for a few days at the beginning of May and will then leave for Ft. Stewart, GA where he will be for two months, then from there he goes to Kuwait for a few weeks to acclimate, then to Iraq. He will arrive in Iraq in the middle of the summer when it is usually 120 degrees. Doesn't that just sound like the best time!? Anyway, he can use your prayers for safety and sanity (as he learns his new job), and we here at home can use them too.
