You know you’re getting really short when people start saying their goodbyes “in case I don’t see you again”. And in fact, I am down to one final (long) meeting before all my duties here are done. Again, the farewell is bittersweet. I’m reluctant to leave an assignment with such great job satisfaction, but boy am I excited to be going home to my family again.
I’m working through all the various checklists of things I need to do, to make my transfer smooth and keep me busy, and am organizing my things into four groups: turn in to the Army, mail home, carry home, and abandon in place. So far I’ve got part 1 packed, and need to get working on the others.
