So after rushing around all morning yesterday to send my paperwork back for my deployment tasking, I got a call from my office last night that the tasking was pulled, so no deployment to GTMO for me. :(
My boss called me shortly thereafter and explained that these things happen, and it happened to him a few times. But he said I'm still ranked #1 in the office to deploy, and that he would be surprised if I didn't end up going somewhere, so not to fret. :/
Oh well, such is life. Biggest bummer is getting so excited for one day and having it taken away so quickly. The guy in my office who deployed last year had that happen twice before his third tasking finally stayed put. Guess I'll be playing the waiting game and it looks like Afghanistan is more likely now. So we'll shall see, but I'll keep you all updated.
I'm flying back to AZ tomorrow night. So cannot wait to be back in my own apartment again and sleeping in my own bed, and cooking my own food. I've probably gained like 10lbs the past 2 weeks. :(
