For a Celebrity Week, this week didn't disappoint. After finishing up our classes at the PRT, I was detained by pertinent PRT stuff, including an informal briefing/bull session with some unannounced yet important visitors, a mission request, and an old friend who trained with me at Bragg and whom I haven't seen since. Major Longfield survived a near-death experience this week, and was waiting on my visitors downstairs. If seeing old "blood and guts" Longfield meant missing O'Reilly, then so be it.
As luck would have it, Bill was still in the "Green Bean" Cafe, well after his scheduled departure, and I was able to delay him 15 seconds more. He was also cranky, probably from the unending stream of last-minute soldiers like myself walking in for a photo-op that had detained him this long. But he was courteous and gentlemanly enough to pose for this one.
