I was informed yesterday that a really good friend of mine and my roommate have been 'called' to duty by the military. My friend Adam is going to be guarding an air base in Panama City, Florida. Apparently, he will be gone for at least a year. Carlos, currently my only roommate (they didn't move anyone else in, woohoo), is headed for Iraq. He leaves tomorrow for North Carolina and then to Iraq soon after that. Needless to say, it's pretty scary.
