OK...so finally able to blog consistently now that I am back in the United States. For those of you that do not know, I was away the last 10 months and just came back from being deployed to Iraq. I will definitely be writing more about my encounters and some good and bad stories about my experiences over there on this blog in the near future. Apart from that, I want to continue where I left off and have this be a mix of important political and current events as well as just some lighthearted writing covering a variety of subjects. Whether you agree, disagree or feel impartial as to the subjects I write about I encourage open dialogue and comments if you feel strongly enough about it. This is a place where I let my thoughts go wherever they decide to go that day, so a warning is being issued here to beware. Stories or subjects may offend some and not because they are meant to, but because I am speaking from the heart and about my honest beliefs. So that being said and wanting to start this off on a positive note; its great to be back in this wonderful country!

So much for trying to keep up with my blog. You can follow me on twitter at www.twitter.com/joliva1180 . I will try to keep this up to date, as I can do it through my phone while I am in Mississippi/Texas for the next 2 months for training. Make sure to follow me on twitter and you can even get it sent to your mobile device.

So many emotions and thoughts in my head right now. Good , bad and other. Thank you for all of you that have been so supportive so far. I've had to do a lot in a little bit of time and if it wasn't for my family and true friends, I wouldn't be able to do it. 7 more days until I head out to Ft. Bliss, Texas (Ft. Bliss my ass lol). There til sep 26, home for about a week then out til july/august of next year. I'm taking a big ass vacation when I get back!
