Short-timer calendar...

96 posts in this topic

Ok, so I am currently using the Playboy calendar on my wall as my short-timers calendar, so thought it might be fun to post one online also. For those of you that don't know what a short-timer calendar is, its a count down until we are on that big freedom bird back to the United States. Now, I can't do an exact count down and give out our exact departure or arrival date due to OPSEC (Operational Security), so the exact count down maybe off by a up to several days..

I will try to post to this everyday, up until the day I leave. if I miss a day for some reason, I will post the next and I will defenatly post once I am home!

It looks like you've been making sure you're well equipped for when you return based on some of your other posts. Hopefully the time flies for the remainder and you can get to fishing! A guy at work is also in Kosovo, and I believe he's scheduled to return around the same time. He picked up a new boat on one of his leaves, so I'm sure he's itching to get it out.

It will be nice when you you can change your avatar to a great big rainbow trout that you caught on your first fishing trip. Thanks for serving our country and making freedom a choice for others. It has been a few (25 since I got out) so I don't remember all the short timer sayings but the one I do remember is "I am so short I could play handball on the curb". One of the best moments when I was out processing out of Fort Dix and they said we could pack our uniform and wear our civilian cloths for the last 2 days I really felt like I was going home after being station in Germany for almost 3 years.

Dude, you're so short you need to hem your pants.

Look me up when you get back home. There's always an empty seat in my boat for a fellow vet.

I will do that.. I got three months of paid leave to use up when I get home, so i figure that leave me enough time to catch some nice fish.....

If it doesn't, it gives me three months to figure out a really good fishing lie!

Just wanted to say thanks for all that you men and women do for the rest of us.

So, to those who are serving now and to the ones that have served in the past...

Thanks (From the heart)

That's funny stuff right there.

Heck, we can come up with some whopper sized lies after a day in the boat. Plus, I know a guy who can photoshop a mountian out of a molehill. So, if we don't catch anything we can take picturs of the minnows and turn them into whales.

Hey, you deserve three months to do what you want when you get home. You will find folks to take you out. Like I said before, you are always welcome in my boat.
