Happy Groundhog Day!

Here's what's going on in your world today.

When one is deployed on Active Duty, there are many holidays you end up missing or celebrating overseas, apart from family and friends. However, the most apt holiday for service members is probably Groundhog's Day. "Why?" you may or may not ask.

Well, almost every day is the same. You wake up, you do your mission, you eat, sleep, maybe you you smoke a stogie and enjoy a drink or three. But, aside from the occassional slight deviations in the formula (reacting to an attack, for example) every day is basically the same. Same place, same surroundings, same people, same everything. Just like the movie Groundhog Day.

And once a year, Rummy comes out of his hole and if he sees his shadow, it's another 6 months of deployment!
