    Well guys, tomorrow starts my first day of active duty after about 2.5 years in the reserve. I'll be training in the US for about a month or so then I am off to Iraq. This will be my first deployment so wish me luck.

    Any tips from you more experienced guys out there?

    Take some extra PT gear. My son said that was the only thing they could wear besides battle dress.
