Going but not for good

So everyone who reads this blog knows, I will be absent from the newspaper for about four months — including through the upcoming election — starting in September.

I recently enlisted in the New York State Army National Guard and am going down to Georgia for my basic training. I may be back at the newspaper for about a week in late December, but otherwise I won't be back until late January or early February.

Just wanted everyone to hear it from me, and since I just had a conversation with two politicians, two reporters and a prolific city blogger about it, I figured I should probably get on the record with it here.

It's still going to be hot down there at that time, so be prepared for that.
My advice, don't be the kind of person who stands out in a crowd, be the kind of guy who is invisible, goes along with the orders that are given by the superior sergeants and officers, and you will be fine.
Thank you for deciding to serve your country, and please be careful.

Thank You for the advice/ support.

In fact, my orders have changed and I am now headed to Missouri for training so I guess it won't be as hot, but then not as warm in the winter.

Indeed. Prolific as in "producing many works."
