The one good thing about 20hr days and and spending your one day "off" in the motorpool instead of doing something trivial like I dunno laundry is that it makes time go a lot faster.
I feel ya man, I had 3 mechanics and a moon dust covered motor pool for our entire RCP in afghanistan (13 vic's) I knew more about wrenching by the end of our deployment than the motor sgt...
But still.... I would never want a 998.
