Now then, it depends on which squadron you get posted to. There is a sqn deploying very soon on Telic 12. They will be replaced later this year by another squadron in 2 SR. So i guess it doesnt matter when you arrive,youll no doubt be going somewhere sunny and shi ite!!
oh by the way if you are in 2SR before May 15th you will either be putting up tents / fatigues for race the sun...or if you are a bit of a gladiator you will be doing an event of some sort.
