I am flying home today!! We fly from Balad, Iraq, to Kuwait (hour and a half flight). Then get on a military charter to Leipzig Germany (6 hour flight) and on to Dallas Texas (11 hour flight), where I get on a regular airline to LAX (a bit over 3 hours). Including stop-overs, it is a long day of flying.
It will be good to see my family again! My lovely wife and adorable children are waiting for me at home!
