I hated every minute I was in BIAP. Too boring IMHO. Although, it was always fun watching Noobs duck and run like hell during a rocket or mortar attack..

IMO, deploying with the USAR/NG is even worse with the train up and crap. So it is actually 18 months. The consensus seems to be that the train up is mostly sitting around.

Update:

U.S. Army Paratrooper///Active Duty///MacDill AFB FLORIDA///13.5 years!!!

Last Friday, I got to play Navy at my good friend's (SeaBee) retirement ceremony by ringing the bell when he entered the ceremony, gave a "stinger" for the C.O., ringing the bell again for the "Watch Poem" & when he had permission to enter ashore. Can't believe he served 27 freakin' years!!!

Navy Seahawk Pilot///Active Duty///CONUS///18 Yrs

Just redeployed this week from a 12 month stint in the Sunni Triangle with the 402nd Civil Affairs Battalion... I definintely got a new appreciation for the American Soldier after volunteering to serve with an Army SpecOps unit.

Now I'm just enjoying my family and hard earned deployment booty quite a bit...

Yeah, a year is long...15 months will seem like an eternity. I don't mind staying longer if it helps getting the mission done. But damned...I miss 2 christmases in a row. Which really sucks because my daughter is getting to be the age where she can enjoy it.

If they try to screw everyone out of the $1000 per month for getting extended, I will be SUPER PISSED OFF ...which wouldn't be outside the realm of possibility IMO...this will probably cost the government about $100 million per month

...and the taxpayers =
