Default Follow Soldier415's Deployment Thread *UPDATED 1-31-09*

Don't know if this should be s sticky or not, but this is the consolidated thread where I will be posting as often as possible with updates, pictures, videos, etc. (while always maintaining OPSEC) during my deployment.

We report in in 2 days, then leave to start training the next day.

You guys have done so much. Thanks in advance and I will keep you posted.

I'll do my best.

Although I did just request a transfer to the platoon that is going to pretty much the most hostile area in country.

Anything worth doing is worth doing right...right?

Hey Dan, is it possible that we can cause international incidents on two fronts? Keep safe bro, and I will touch base with you as soon as we hit sand. We are looking at the 16th (not OpSec since it was reported in the evening news) as our bounce date. DocSmiley and I are having a ball though! Keep your head up, your *** down, and your . . .(oh wait, did I get that backwards?) you know the deal bro!

It is very possible. I plan on organizing a "Wet Burka Contest" soon after hitting ground in Afghanistan. We will see how well it plays out.

Stay safe. Give me a call if you get a minute.

North Coast GIs going to war

By GUY KOVNER
THE PRESS DEMOCRAT

Published: Thursday, October 2, 2008 at 4:50 p.m.
Last Modified: Thursday, October 2, 2008 at 5:10 p.m.

About 60 California National Guard soldiers spent Thursday morning packing gear — weapons, computers and tools — at the Petaluma Armory in preparation for a year-long deployment to Afghanistan.
MARK ARONOFF/The Press Democrat
Brandee Cardenas, 25, pregnant with her baby due Oct. 18, hugs her husband, Spc. Sandro Cardenas, 26, before leaving him at the Petaluma National Guard Armory on Thursday. The 235th Engineer Co. heads Friday for training at Camp Roberts near Paso Robles before going to Afghanistan.

“It’s like moving day for us,” said 1st Sgt. Christopher Kramer. “It’s not an easy move.

On Friday, the soldiers from the Petaluma-based 235th Engineer Co. will depart for about two months of training at Camp Roberts north of Paso Robles.

In early January ,the company of about 100 men will leave for Afghanistan where they will conduct road clearing missions for the infantry, locating and disposing of deadly roadside bombs.

The company includes about 40 men from Sonoma and Mendocino counties.

Training involves certifying each soldier in hundreds of task, including first aid, weapons and vehicle operations.

“We have a lot of work to do,” said Capt. Cory Marks, the company commander and a Ukiah CHP officer.

Marks said that among the soldiers stepping away from civilian life are another CHP officer, emergency medical technicians, a grocery store manager, a high school principal, construction workers and a FedEx delivery driver.

Some of his men will be taking a 50 percent pay cut to serve in the combat zone, he said.
