Stuck in Kirkuk

I have been stuck here going on 4 days now. Apparently air travel in Iraq is not very all. I showed up this morning to get on a Fixed Wing Aircraft (which is supposed to be more reliable than a Rotary Wing) for them to tell me the flight was delayed until XXXXhours tomorrow morning... she may have well said cancelled.

Sgt Bostic just came and tapped me on the shoulder asking me how I'd like to go out at 1300 today!? duh... When and where!? I'm there. I don't know what happened, but I'm signing off so I can catch my flight!! Wish me luck!!!

UPDATE.... flight was delayed and in turn I was going to miss the connection to Speicher. I'm still here. overjoyed.

That is pretty typical for all military flights. That sounds like the story of my life for the past 14 years. Imagine telling your kids, dad is coming home, no he is not, yes he is, not anymore. I feel your pain... even as we speak. Hoping my man gets home in time for my bday, but not counting on it.
