I miss my best friend

So, for those of you that don't know Harry got a hernia a while ago and had to leave really suddenly to go get surgery. He stopped in to let me know and say bye but I was planning on seeing him again in a few weeks. Well a few weeks later was Christmas and my best friend was nowhere to be found. I found out he was stuck in Sharana and wouldn't be back for a day or two, so no big deal. We went on mission the day after Christmas and didn't get till New Years Day and I walked around trying to look for Harry, but again he was nowhere but his platoon was there. I went back to my room and logged on my computer for bored time and I got a message from him saying that they had sent him back to the US for the rest of the deployment so I wouldn't be seeing him for another 3 months. Why would you do this, God? So, again, not too bad. I am so happy he's out of here, its an absolute hell and I'm happy I don't ever have to worry about him on mission and only a few months till we get to hang out again. Now it is dawning on me, this could be the best friend I'll ever have and he's in the US and I'm here and when I go home then I'll be leaving the army while he'll be leaving to Ft Carson for a few more years army time so we won't have that much time to hang out. I used to love getting back to Ghazni cause I could go to his room and hang out with him and Menard but now Menard is gone(In the Florida hospital) and Harry is in the US and even my other friends seem to be busy with their best friends. This sucks. I can't wait to get back to the US so Harry and I can go do stupid things and play with the animals at Petsmart but it's not fair that we'll only have 3 months left when I get back.

Don't worry, Idaho friends, I still love you guys, too.


  1. That stinks... but look how close you are to coming home and being DONE?! They can't control you anymore!

  2. That IS really sad, I'm sorry you don't have any best friends there with you! We are sad too, our best friends moved to Canada and now we have no one to be with, so I understand your pain. Keep being safe so you can come home soon!

  3. I feel your pain! The Hendricks family moved, the Andersons moved, the Blackers moved, the Tanners moved, the Collards moved - so many of our really good friends moved away! (And I know it had nothing to do with us, haha, it was all work-related.)
    Same with Brooks and Megan. :(
    And a few friends just got really busy doing other things. I'm happy for them, but sad for me. I can't wait for the Hereafter, when I plan on having unlimited time with EVERYONE I love! (Including you :)
