Got my packet today, I'm going to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. It's a one year station, but I may extend for another year. Follow-on assignment to Ft Leonard Wood, MO. Well, it's not Iraq or Afghanistan, but I suppose it'll do. I'm not sure whether I'll be doing detainee ops or something else. It is more money and less to do than here, so I'll make more, spend less and work out more. And there aren't any IEDs or armed insurgents. I guess it's got its good points.
