I have finally gotten onto a convoy heading south to help out! My base is sending down a 10K all terrain forklift to help out in the town of Ofunato and I am one of only a few people in my unit authorized to drive the trailer that can transport it. It looks like I will be there for a few days so I may not be able to update since electricity and cell coverage is not so good down there.
I do plan on taking a lot of pictures if I get to see anything, and I will make sure to get them online when I get back. I am leaving in just a few hours and need to get some sleep right now. My family shouldn't worry about me too much! The worst is over and I am not in danger. Misawa AB is in a great place to be able to help the Japanese and I consider myself lucky to take part in it this operation.
See ya'll in a few days!
