and no im not deployed at the moment but i am saying this while im out away from my family doing some training out in the field and i still have 15 more days left. im glad i brought my phone so that in the evenings when i have down time i can talk to my wonderful and understanding wife. tonight i was lucky and was able to use a computer and chat with her and see her and my son via webcam.
