Yeah, stop whining. Get out there and do your job. Could have sworn that I didn't feel the need to post on here before I deployed.

Go out get pissed, watch your back, look after your mates, make sure your weapon is fukking spotless, never ever go out without your weapon and body armor. Make a will, get insured have fun!

Don't have too much to drink before a long flight. Two reasons:
1) You'll be constantly back and forth to the bog.
2) You'll be dehydrated on the flight anyway and combining this with a hangover will be deeply unpleasant.

You'll have done all your paperwork and packed your kit ten times over so assuming you're back from your embarkation leave you might as well chill out a bit. Go and have a game of pool or go for a run for a bit. If you can get off depot go somewhere for a good steak dinner with a couple of mates but don't go mad at the booze. (See (2) above) ;)

Have a good tour and let us know how you get on.

Good Luck!

Stay focused, mitigate risks as much as possible, and do not believe G2 assessments until confirmed via mk. I eyeballs... come home safe at the end.
