Day 1: The Assigment

I have been assigned my first deployment, I will be heading to  Sacramento  tomorrow morning to experience Red Cross shelters for myself and help insofar as I can. 

Interesting fact in that my first deployment will be to the place I spent my childhood, what a privilege, what an honor and what a trippy coincidence. Life is serendipitous to say the least.
