No SEFF for me again.

Well, bad news on the phone for me today. All leaves are cancelled indef. due to the issues in Libya. So, all the work, all the time, all the money spent to get ready for SEFF is for nothing. I have only been home from Afghanistan for a bit over a month, and now this? It really needs to end at one point.

Needless to say Im more than a little irritated about it, but, when it all comes down to it, its my job, its what I signed on the dotted line for over 18 years ago, its what I do.

You guys have fun at SEFF and hopefully I'll see you next year.

Laine.

That just sucks! Keep your chin up and keep telling yourself only two more years, only two more years. Hopefully they won't send you back into this "kinetic military action".

well, if it makes you feel better, the bird you fly at work is 10x more badass than anything that will be flying at SEFF

I'll bet the frustrations @ missing SEFF will melt away the first time you hear those turbines spool up

Not meant as a knock on SEFF, just props to the blackhawk

Laine,

My assessment is that you won't actually have to go anywhere. Let me re-phrase that in case there is a strategic deployment somewhere - "just in case". I don't think we will see ground action in Lybia. Keep on flyin'!

In my own defense at taking your bait, I have first hand expirience with having had R&R cut short due to unforseen squadron operational requirements. Looking forward to meeting you face to face and thank you sir for your continued service.

It ended for me last July. Civilian life really is not all it's cracked up to be. I actually miss the Navy.

On the up side, I wear a goatee now and I haven't had a haircut in 9 months.
