Everyone found out for sure that we’re leaving on Sunday.  Some people still had no idea, but most of us knew, it seems like.

Found out we’re supposed to leave on Sunday.  I think I was one of the first to know, because I gave out hints here and there during the night and no one really caught it.  It was hard keeping it

The rumors are getting worse everyday.  One day it’s, we’re leaving in 2 weeks.  Another it’s we’re going to get demobilized.  Today was one of the worse days, when I pretty much found out everyone has a different agenda regarding
