Deployment 10-1 OEF

My Rack

In 2010 I deployed to Afghanistan under Operation Endurance Freedom. This was my little space for 7 months. It was a great experience sharing a tent with 20 other girls. We fought and complained but at the end of the day we were happy we were together. The memories of this deployment are near and dear to my heart. I get a little chocked up when i look back at the pictures. I was 20 years old and i was on the other side of the world. I admit it was scary at first but when i left i cried. I learned so much about people and about team work. I would do it all over if i had the chance. I am proud to say i was part of a war that is going to be written in history books.

  1. I would like to thank you for serving for our freedom. I cannot say that I have ever experienced anything of that nature. It takes a lot of courage to do what you did and not many of us could. It serves as an experience and a part of your history. You will always be a soldier regardless if you are no longer a part of it. I have always had my own room and when I lived in the dorms I was miserable!

    I really enjoyed working with you in our culture group. I can see the passion you have to get what you need done. I’m sure you carry what you have learned in the military to your daily life. Once again thank you for all you have done 🙂

  2. It is incredible that you went over there and helped in the war effort! I don’t think it is something I could have done so I have to say I commend how brave you are for going over there. I’ve always wanted to go to the other side of the world like that but definitely under different circumstances. What was the best thing you miss about the culture over there? Were the native foods good?

  3. Hi Sandra. I have to admit that I was surprised to hear that you served in Afghanistan. Needless to say, it takes some courage to want to serve in the military. It’s not the kind of courage I can see myself having. Usually, a veteran would be someone with a certain seriousness about them. With you, it’s not like that. You project optimism and a good work ethic. I don’t think anyone would have guessed that you’re a veteran.

    Even your design for your blog is all nice and pretty. I don’t know how you manage to do it. Nevertheless, I like you. I will remember your show of spirit. I will remember working with you in our culture project. I liked how you talked about attire and brought food for our project. I couldn’t present with that much enthusiasm and comprehension. My memory is really not that good and I have been depressed for some time. So thank you for everything.
