Well, our weekend didn't start out quite like we thought it would. We got some news from Kyle's work that we had an idea was coming but was finally confirmed.
Kyle and his unit will NO LONGER be deploying to Afghanistan. Now many of you would think I would be jumping up and down but I'm not. I'm sad and disappointed for Kyle and all the soldiers. This is what they have been training for and to have it taken away sucks to say the least. He is angry and I don't blame him. Now I don't want anyone to think that we aren't also happy that he gets to stay home and safe...I don't want him in harms way but I also know that being in the Army means that deployments happen.
He was also told that he will stay in command until our brigade goes away. Right now that will be sometime in early 2015. It is unheard for a company commander to stay around for longer than 12-14 months. He will have 2 years as a commander. He has already submitted the application for his congressional fellowship and the timing couldn't be more perfect if he gets it. He would finish out command and we would report to DC in June 2015. Fingers crossed!
This is proof as to how quickly the Army can change things.
We spent the rest of the weekend relaxing and then Sunday we had our photos taken at this gorgeous place:
We had the best time with Jax and can't wait to see the amazing photos she took.
I hope you all had a great weekend!
