Citizen-Soldier with 27 years of service. Volunteered to go to Afghanistan to advise the Afghan National Army as an ETT (Embedded Tactical Trainer.) Wound up as a Police Mentor Team (PMT) mentor working to improve what for most people is their first contact with the government of Afghanistan.
The Major in charge of our team told me that I would be paired up with a 1st Lieutenant (promotable) and gave me his contact information yesterday. I emailed him and introduced myself, and he called me this evening. I think we're going to get along really well. He's Celtic, like I am, so how can we go wrong. He's also done a year in Iraq and has some good experience from there. The pieces just keep falling together. So far, they are falling together nicely. One day at a time, we'll get this thing done.
