Sergeant Kim Soon to Be Deployed

July 25, 2006

 
     
  The every-other-Tuesday Girls Night Out (GNO) entourage, organized by sister Blair, has a send-off party as Kim is being activated by the Air National Guard, ultimately to be deployed in the Middle East later this year.
Attendees brought pictures and memories for a scrapbook.

From Chamberland
To desert sand
A smooth transition
Would be grand.

Can you guess, while away,
Things all the folks will say
About your military position
Being more work than play?

Whoda thunk?  You joined the Guard
To go to war and work this hard?
A civilian-military collision,
To find insurgents to bombard.

You know, we will miss you, Kim.
Send us notes of where you've been.
Get a tent with air-condition!
And, a hat with a broad brim.
