Just Around The Corner

I received correspondence this week from CH Goode at DACH (Department of the Army, Chief of Chaplains), "I will begin contacting you all beginning early next week to discuss your initial “projected” assignment." Laura and I are hoping that we will get that call on Monday. Of course, we have no way of knowing how many people he has to contact, but maybe he will go alphabetically, since our last name starts with a D! :-)

CH Goode also stated, "For some, it will be no surprise, for some it will be a great adventure, and for others it will be a disappointment. And yet, for ALL of you it will be the best place to begin serving in the military ministry that the Almighty God could ever imagine...even if it is a place that you personally had never imagined!" Of our three options for placement two are places that are considered "hot spots." If we get any of our three choices we will be happy.

What are our three choices? Ft. Hood, TX; Ft. Carson, CO; Ft. Lewis, WA. Actually, we are pretty flexible wherever we end up, however, I am not sure I would want to end up at Ft. Riley, KS. We will see.

Oh...hooray...yea...super...Washington...I just hope you realize that if I have to TREK clear across the country that only means that once I arrive WITH FOUR CHILDREN that I will merely have to stay there ALL SUMMER LONG each and every summer. Humm...Sounds like fun to me! :)

Don't you love those standard letters. Fort Lewis just mandated PT everyday at 5:30.

CH Goode is prompt. Let us know where you end up! Of Course we will be spending 90 days in Fort Jackson!
