Hurry Up and Wait

"This phrase and this phrase alone could easily be the army’s “other” motto. As Soldiers already know, life in the Army revolves around this phrase. On one certain occasion, recently, a few of us lucky enough to be picked for a certain mission, were able to see this at its best. It was around 1600 and we were finishing up with the final tasks of what was thought to be a short day. A few of my soldiers were already dismissed for the day and I was ready to leave myself, when SSG Bedke came flying in through the door saying, “We have a mission, we leave in a couple hours!”"
