Waiting For Return – January 12, 2011
We just returned from Syracuse, NY after saying our goodbyes to Ben. He was originally supposed to ship out to Fort Benning, GA on January 12. However, after much of the area was pounded by snow and cold, including Georgia, many airports were closed down. Actually, the plane was in Syracuse, NY ready to take off but with all the cancellations, there was no crew.
The next morning Ben did fly off for Atlanta, via Detroit, as he reported for his first active duty assignment – Basic Training. Ben will be gone for a total of 18 weeks, returning in May before returning to active duty at whatever base he gets assigned to.
