Just as I had posted yesterday that I had received my imminent signal of retirement from active military service, I have been mobilized. Yes! talk about the devil… the featured image says it all – “fortune”, not so for me who just celebrated the perceived end of call-ups!
You see, mobilizations are not some simple press of a button. It entails a lot of preparation for the real action and the arrivals of thousands of men at designated rendezvous points. And then there is all the waiting…
Rendezvous? Yep, except it isn’t romantic.
So, I have 8 hours to make my way to the designated place. In the meantime I have been pulling out the uniform and equipment (which has been in storage), dusting the covers off etc… It will be a long day (as opposed to a long journey).
