Back from the UK. Got up at 0300 (England time), flew home, and went to bed at 2200 eastern time. If you do the time-zone math, you'll realize that yesterday was an awfully busy 24 hours, and I was awake for all of them.
The trip was good. Saw lots of neat stuff (pics soon) and met some good people.
This was my first "operational" 2 weeks in a few years (the last 2 were schools), so I had the opportunity to spend time with some of the young folks in the service of our nation. These young kids (many under the age of 20) impressed me yet again with their skill and dedication. It happens every time, but it gets me every time. I am immensely proud to serve with all of them.
