At the beginning of February my husband unexpectedly got PCA (permanent change of address) orders to a different unit here on 29 Palms. He was with 1st Tank Battalion previously (since we moved here last May) and is now with 3rd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion. Their communications chief was not going to be able to deploy with them and so they sent my husband over to do so for him. 🙂 No hard feelings, I promise.
Roy loves his new unit..has had nothing but good things to say about it as a whole and about all the guys he’s working with. They left this past week for Iraq and will be gone approximately 7 months. I’ve heard from him a couple times already and he’s doing fine…still adjusting timewise.
In the meantime the kids and I have a full life to lead. School, sports, scouting…all sorts of things.
Another spouse and I have started a Yahoo group for the family members of 3rd LAR.
I’ll keep you updated on anything important happening with Roy. 🙂
