OMG...I'm still waiting.
This waiting is driving me crazy. I am trying to rationalize this is what it's like for a soldier to get their orders.

While I'm waiting to get to Afghanistan,
Soldiers are waiting to come home.
Some of them will do anything to pass the time faster, better and with a little fun.
