At this point we were at CFB Trenton waiting to leave. There was a lot of media there, and with all the hype I think most of us were excited and ready to go. Our first stop was Glasgow, Scotland and then on to Croatia. From there it was a day in UAE at camp Mirage – no photos allowed unfortunately!

When we arrived in Islamabad they had a huge meal all laid out for us. It was some unknown meat and rice along with a few other things. It was very tasty We were not expecting such a nice meal and thought it was going to be rations as soon as we got into the country. We would get them soon enough.
