Learned last night at the funeral home that a guy I went to high school with is Michael's new Company Commander. We talked for the longest time about his new position. This will be his first time deploying. It's a small world for sure. I small sigh of relief for me. I am 100% sure that Michael will have the best guidance and role model possible. He will be in good hands. I can trust this guy and know that he will do whatever it takes for his unit.

It's a for sure deployment. They leave for Camp Shelby very soon for several days to do all their medical processing. It's all being done so very different for this second deployment. I am thinking that the changes will be great.

I learned a lot about when and where they will be doing their training and how long they will train before they deploy. Lots of changes, but for the better from what I gathered last night.

I honestly can say I think I just might sleep a little better now that I know that he will be taken care of and I know without a doubt that this new Company Commander will do a fine job with our soldiers. He will lead them in the right direction.

Stacy I am glad that you have an added level of comfort. Good leaders are so vital to a good mission. They are key to keeping morale up and soldiers safe. I am glad that Michael has your friend as a trusted leader!
